INTERFORM SEWING

In the workshops presented through INTERFORM Learn, students gain knowledge about the basic tools, terms, and techniques of sewing. They develop their skills by completing simple garments and through advanced coursework they can pursue their craft through designing and creating a collection of well finished garments. We offer basic and advanced sewing courses on both weekdays and weekends, as well as evening options, to accommodate the schedules of almost any student. After our world was hit by Covid-19, we realized the value of sewing skills as the world was panicking to find enough masks for themselves and their loved ones . One of the lessons we have learned from this pandemic is that we shouldn't let sewing die within our society, not only because it’s a fun hobby or a profession, but also because it is necessary in life.

The beginners course is the ideal place to begin for those who have interest in jumpstarting their learning in the fundamentals of sewing. These course modules cover introductory level classes in sewing, students will learn from threading needles, cutting, shaping, basic pattern making techniques to draping and also fundamentals of apparel design. They will also gain some knowledge about garment construction at the end of this course and then will develop their skills by completing simple garments.
