If you always find yourself needing to alter your garments and you've been thinking about learning how to do it yourself, this is the perfect class to get you started.

In this private class, we recommend coming in with a bag of clothes that need to be altered. We'll go through each garment one-by-one with you, grading each one from easiest to hardest. You'll decide with your teacher which garment to start altering. Please note, we are unable to work with denim or leather as these materials require industrial sewing machines.

Your private teacher will discuss your needs and goals with you and guide you through each techniques in order to achieve your desired result.

To get the most out of this alterations class, we recommend that you have a basic understanding of how to operate a sewing machine. Our Sewing For Beginners group class is great for learning how to thread the machine and sew straight lines, the perfect foundation class before you start your alteration classes.

If this is your first alterations class, we'd recommend bringing simple garments to alter such as hemming pants, tops, taking tops/dresses in at the waist etc.

Please note, customers generally get 1-2 garments finished in a three hour session, it entirely depends on your current sewing level and the complexity of the garments

- Unfortunately our venue is not wheelchair accessible due to two steps leading into the venue

Our story began in 2018 in a small Redfern studio. With only one desk and one sewing machine, our first class was published and we haven't looked back. Our passion for the arts coupled with bringing people together, brought our vision of launching a creative hub to life.

In our modern world, everything moves quickly, we have adapted to a fast-paced environment and sometimes it can be hard to slow ourselves down. Sydney Creative is a place for people to relax, regroup and find a creative outlet that will hopefully aid in bringing people a sense of achievement, fulfilment and joy.

Today, our classes run from our own venue in Redfern. We run lots of different creative classes from Sewing to Jewellery, painting and lots more, we love following the trends and developing new classes for our customers to enjoy.
