A beginner sewing course for creative fashionistas.

  •  video lessons with visual demonstrations

  •  mini quizzes to affirm what you have learnt

  • templates for quicker sample making 

  • evaluation sheets to reflect on your progress

  • a discussion board for each module to use for questions and chatting to other students

  • a fun non qualification certificate upon completion

  • I recommend 1-2 weeks per module to give time for practice

  • a live Q&A virtual session every week – this would be a good chance to catch up on progress, address questions and have a nice fun chat over a glass of G&T

  • newfound confidence in your sewing and design skills

Following Eva’s introduction course to Sustainable Fashion was a great experience. It allowed me to deepen my sewing skills while having fun creating as well as meeting lovely people!

Eva is very passionate about designing which is evident as the course is confidently delivered in a knowledgeable yet relaxed way.  The course provides you with the confidence to sew and Eva puts you, as a student, at ease, as she always provides feedback with encouragement. Will definitely recommend to any of my friends, and their siblings (younger generation would very much be interested in this – if not, they should be!)  Thanks Eva  - great course from a great instructor and designer !!!

The course exceeded my expectations! I didn't expect to learn as much I did, and so easily! I feel inspired to design, and to continue learning!

How much time should I spend on each module?

Ultimately it is up to you how long you spend on each module but on average 1 - 2 weeks per module are recommended. You may find some modules easier and quicker to complete than others, which may take you a little longer. This would depend on the things you enjoy most about sewing and fashion design and on your previous experience.

How much fabric would I need for sample making?

The amount of fabric you would need would depend on the amount of samples you are planning to make for each module. Around 2 metres of fabric (or different fabrics to create more colourful and fun samples) would be sufficient but you can use more to make more samples if you prefer.

Are the Q&A sessions compulsory?

The Q&A live sessions are not compulsory. However, students have found them very useful. They are a place to meet other students in small groups, compare your learning experiences and also ask questions about things that you have found a little difficult. The sessions are for your benefit and will keep you motivated as you go, so while they are not compulsory - it is recommended that you are part of them as much as possible.

Do I get a certificate once I complete the course?

This is a fun non-qualification course for fashion hobbyists and craft lovers. Upon completion of the course you will be emailed a non-qualification certificate. This is not an official document but it is a token of your achievement.
