Great class in which the teacher guided six of us through the process of making a pair of pants from a pile of scrap fabric and a couple of metres of lace. The teaching was clear and helpful without being patronising, every student was able to go at their own pace and it was really motivating to go home with a finished item! Can't wait to try making a few more pairs!
