The Ultimate Beginner's Course

The main goal of the Ultimate Beginner’s Course (intensive or not) is to help you develop the skills you need in order to complete our in-house or online courses. Just as with any of our making courses, you will be given a project of making your own traditional tailor’s apron to be completed outside of class times.

 

Despite that your project will be an apron, this is not an apron making course.

This is a course to give you the necessary beginner’s skills to create something that will eventually grow into more advanced projects like trousers and jackets.

 

You will be expected to put in at least two hours of your own time each evening after classes
