COVID-19 update: State Library is gradually reopening. Before you visit, please read what spaces are open.
In this online sewing workshop series, you’ll create a Bateau (boat neck) style top or smock dress with no fabric wastage using a basic design method that requires only a few personal measurements. Our project will focus on what to consider in regard to clothing fit, utilising the most of our resources with minimal environmental and social impact and an open-ended design approach creating something unique and mindful.
If you have access to a sewing machine and would like to learn how to sew at home, we encourage you to take part of this workshop no matter your gender, background or skill level (suitable for people with beginner to beginner-intermediate sewing experience).
