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.
<b>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</b>

For a one-off casual class, enough time to alter 1-2 simple garments.

• 12x 3hr Sessions, 36 hrs total $2376 ($66 per hour, saving of $612)
Best for individuals who are serious about learning alterations and would like to cover multiple techniques.
With our packages, should you find that after a few sessions you would like to learn something other than alterations, such as making clothes from patterns, or drafting your own patterns, these sessions are flexible and the lesson type can be changed to suit your needs as all of our private sewing classed have the same rates.

I’ve been to Sydney Creative twice and I had so much fun both times. Sophie was so helpful and accommodating when I was trying to find time to come in around work and I learnt so much while I was there, especially with Lucy. She was so patient and explained everything so well! I highly recommend Sydney Creative!!
Great course.. has got me wanting to learn more. Sophie was a lovely teacher who explained things nice and simply. Would definitely recommend for beginners looking to get into sewing!
If my first workshop was an incredible experience because I learnt how to correct many bad habits when sewing, this workshop provided me with such an amazing level of achievement and satisfaction! Lucy for her first class was absolutely fantastic of patience and tips and advices. At the end, I managed to finish the short for my daughter and I was so excited about it that the very next day I did another one. Thank you so much for building up my skills and confidence, this is really very much appreciated. Take care and see you soon
It’s the second time I had the pleasure to create something with Sydney creative and it was both amazing experiences!! I am so proud of my handmade earrings, all my friends are envious and impressed . I learnt so much during the session, thanks to the amazing teacher Emily, she is patient and passionate! I feel confident that I can do it on my own after 1st session - it would just require to get the material required that can be bought directly at the studio so convenient!
Loved the silver jewellery and clay jewellery workshop! The teachers are very patient, fun and professional! Would recommend!
I had experience learn introduction sewing beginners making cover cushion Sophie very helpful teach me new skills about how to use sewing machine that was amazing so much fun thank you for your help 😊
I have had my new sewing machine for more than a year but had no idea how to use it and was a bit scared of it. After one class with Sophie that all changed. I made a cute cushion at the workshop under Sophie’s expert guidance - than came home and made a second one all on my own. I highly recommend this class for any newbies out there - so much better than watching a you tube video - with so many helpful, practical tips along the way.
Did an earring making workshop. Emma was wonderful. So helpful and such a fun course. Highly recommend.
Katey was a delight. I learnt a lot and will definitely book in to another course at Sydney Creative once I practice with my pattern making! By the way the space is very cool
Can highly recommend the jewlery class from Sydney Creative. Teacher was professional and had many years of experience in jewlery design. Also very patient!
