There are some wonderful soft furnishings on the market but some are hugely expensive. Would you like to be able to create your own, unique pieces at a fraction of the cost?

Designing and creating your own soft furnishings is a great way to add a touch of your own personality to your home – and it can be a really relaxing, stimulating and calming way to spend your free time too.

Join us on this course to learn how create your own pieces, and gain the basic skills you need to get started on your soft furnishings journey.

You will work in a small, friendly group of like minded people; make new friends and pick up new skills at the same time!

What will I learn?

You will learn how to use the sewing machine safely and how to design, plan, develop, and assemble your own, unique soft furnishing project.

What is it like to learn with East Riding Adult Learning and Employability?

As well as working in groups, you will benefit from regular time working with your tutor, discussing your progress and planning your next steps. They will also tell you about all of the other great opportunities that you have access to including help with developing your skills, joining one of our creative skills classes or sessions to improve your health, wellbeing, confidence or resilience. If you are looking for work or aiming for a change of role, then your tutor will also make you aware of the employability programmes we have available to support you in achieving your employment goals.

Our team will be there to support you at every step of your journey and we always welcome your feedback to help us ensure that you feel safe, happy, supported and welcome.

What do I need to join the course?

Just enthusiasm to learn a new craft – no experience is needed.

What do I need to provide for the first session?

In week one, you will design and plan your personal project; your tutor will then tell you what resources you will need to bring in week two, to complete your item.

What could I do next?

You may consider some of our other Adult Learning courses such as crochet, dressmaking, interior design, patchwork and quilting, mindfulness and photography, or computer skills, English, maths, and employability courses.
