In this two-part sewing course, you will learn the basics of setting up a sewing machine, learn all about patterns and how to prep your fabric to make your own cardigan wrap!

Throughout the two sessions, our sewing specialist will share their knowledge and tips with you to help make the process run as smoothly and enjoyable as possible.

Course outline:

First class:

  • Learn all about the machine, how to set it up and sew
  • Prepare your pattern for the garment
  • Cut your fabric according to the pattern

Second class:
  • Continue with your garment
  • Sew your cardigan wrap and learn how to make necessary adjustments
  • Learn how to sew straight lines

This course is held at Sydney Creative's art studio in Redfern. The building is occupied by talented artists, exhibitions and co-working spaces.

Sydney Creative also offers sewing supplies from the studio for those who wish to continue with their sewing at home.

You will leave the class feeling confident with your new sewing skills and are welcome to book further private sessions to work on other DIY sewing projects!

Sydney Creative was launched in 2019 by Textile Designer Sophie Parry.

Creativity is, and always has been, the driving force in Sophie's life. From an early age she would always swap the dolls and toys for a pen and notepad. She never minded being left to her own devices while her parents needed to go shopping. With a colouring-in book to hand Sophie happily sat quietly either scribbling away or patiently filling in each tiny hole in the fabric of her red tights – the latter much to their frustration.

Sophie's creativity and passion for art led to an interest in fabrics, sewing and textiles. It was at university where Sophie found her feet in the textiles profession, developing the skills and techniques that would guide her on her own journey in textile design. During this time, Sophie won several awards for her textile work and was chosen to exhibit her final third year project at the prestigious New Designers exhibition in London.

Upon graduating, Sophie left her hometown in Wales to experience different cultures around the world. She settled in Sydney and decided to launch her Handmade Baby Boutique brand Scribble & Sew. In 2018 Sophie introduced sewing workshops through Scribble & Sew and later re-branded as Sydney Creative.

Sydney Creative currently offer unique and flexible sewing workshops for busy Sydneysiders. Sophie understands that not everyone has a full day to spend learning how to sew, which is why she launched the Introduction To Sewing workshop. In the future, Sophie plans to offer more creative workshops such as painting, punch needling and social sewing.
