When you want to wear more creative fashion the D.I.Y. sewing course at STUDIO 24 IS JUST IT!
It is a BASIC starters course in 8 lessons, which will provide you in crafting techniques, sewing skills and inspirations.

Each course excists on a weekly basis. They are held at the Tuesday and Wednesday evening.
So a lesson takes 2,5 hours. And together
with 5 fellow students you will share the workroom.

The Textile Zone basic course is based on professional sewing- techniques so you can develop your own style and methods later on. Usely we trace and copy already drawn patterns. You don't need any skills or equipment beforehand. Your sense of style in d.i.y. will do wonders for your creativity !

The basic course is especially developed for starters by Désirée Jonkers, a designer based in Amsterdam. The course is held in STUDIO 24 and the STUDIO will provide all the equipment you'll need during course. Machines, fabrics, upholstery, patterns, inspirations and haberdashery accompanied by free cups of tea. The lessons are English spoken.

We practise the common crafts: cutting straight on grain with fabrics, making neat seams and do the little needlework like: pinning, basting, gathering. Even so successful you will learn to make buttonholes and place zippers!
We plunge into the variety of d.i.y fashion; a colour-full experience! There are several levels in design on the d.i.y. Market! It varies from quick and easy to extended almost professional couture. We will create a garment which is related to our own way of dressing. And is created with 4 - 6 pieces, (average starters level)

So in 8 weeks you experience body-measuring , reading patterns, cutting lay-out and textiles in flexible and stiff
binding. And ofcours you learn to operate the sewing machine and all the needed basic techniques so you'll reach a creative level.
