Beginners Sewing Course XL

Beginners Sewing Course XL

Tuesday 27 July - Tuesday 31 August
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Beginners sewing course XL is an extended version of the classic Beginners sewing course. It is a 6-week evening course, so there’s two extra projects to make. This extra sewing practice makes a huge difference to your sewing skill and confidence.

It is a good starting point to learn expert sewing techniques whether you want to progress into dressmaking, soft furnishing or craft projects. It’s also a great refresher if you’ve not sewn for a while. You’ll learn how to understand sewing machines, get experience of using different stitch types, learning about stitch lengths, widths and tensions. I’ll explain what the different presser feet are for and you’ll learn how to measure and cut fabric.

“TREMORS” is an exhibition of figurative painting and drawing. This exhibition is of new work in oil and acrylic on canvas and charcoal and ink on paper.

The young men portrayed in many of these works don’t “draw conclusions on the wall” they are still preoccupied with the substance of their own exotic existence as they encounter it.

Lynn Ahrens’ recent exhibitions have been concerned with the human figure and he is currently exhibiting in the exhibition “Figurative Art Now”, Mall Galleries, London, online exhibition (see web-site) from 7th July  -20th Sept. 2021.
