Machine Sewing for Beginners
Tutor Julia Hincks
Duration 5 sessions Wednesdays 6-9pm from 21 June 2017 to 19 July 2017
Location Brighton Junction
This course is part of a Government funded project called Self Health – a national research project designed to measure the impact of adult education courses on mental health and wellbeing. It is for anyone with mild to moderate mental health issues.
Do you want to learn how to use a sewing machine? This course is aimed at beginners and will teach you how to thread your machine, adjust stitch size and styles and trouble shoot basic problems as they arise. During this practical course you will gain confidence in using the sewing machine whilst creating a range of items including a cushion cover, tote bag, purse and simple clothes.
Who Can Attend?
The project is open to anyone aged 19 or over who has mild to moderate mental health challenges such as finding it hard to go out, not sleeping, worrying, feeling stressed, anxious, sad or low. You will be asked to complete a self-assessment of your mental health to see if you meet the criteria to be involved in the project. People can only attend one Self Health course so that as many people as possible can take part in the research project and provide us with their data. If you have already completed a Self Health course between September 2015 and April 2017 you will not be able to attend another long course but you can attend a Workshop for Returning Learners
