WORKSHOPS



Do you have a healthy respect, even a fear of sewing machines? Have you attempted making seemingly simple things only to give up before they’re finished? Fret no more, for now you can get the basic skills and confidence in one of Rudolf’s creative workshops.

Discover something you did not know you had in you!


Held on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm, they are not only a great way to get creative, learn something useful and to meet new people, but also the perfect introduction to Rudolf’s courses. A three-hour session cost just $99.00 per person and bookings are essential. Places are strictly limited, so get in quick!


 Sewing Machine Basics 

Every first and third Saturday of the month

This is the ideal course for those with no sewing experience at all. Become friends with sewing machines; get to know how they function and how to prepare one for sewing. Learn the tricks to control and guide fabric correctly and understand the importance of proper maintenance. No experience or even a sewing machine is required.
 Soft Furnishings 

Every second Saturday of the month

Learn how to measure up a cushion and create an individual cover for it. A  50cm cushion insert will be provided, but you will need to bring sufficient pre-washed fabric to cover two panels 60x 60cm and either a 50cm zip or some nice buttons. Consider combining fabric remnants or recycling your old garments for an individual touch. You will need to have basic machining skills to get the most out of this course.
 Cuddly Toys 

Every fourth Saturday of the month

Create a unique soft toy using one of three patterns. You will need to bring two (or more) co-ordinated fabrics; they do not need to be new, so let your imagination run free! Stuffing material and bits and bobs for trims and decoration will be provided. You will need to have basic machining skills to get the most out of this course.
