Learn basic sewing skills and how to use a sewing machine in a friendly, relaxed environment under the guidance of an experienced tutor.
Lessons are structured to build confidence and cover common clothing-creation techniques such as seam finishes, buttonholes and the insertion of zippers.
Bring along your own sewing machine or use one of ours.
The Bridge also runs a mending course if you’d like to learn to mend your own clothes.
ACFE and fee-for-service fees are paid per course, in full, prior to course commencement. In situations of financial hardship, students can apply to email@example.com. Subsidised course fees are available for students who are ACFE-eligible. To be eligible for ACFE funding you must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen or an Australian permanent resident. Concession price is available for pension and healthcare-card holders for government-funded programs (ACFE). A seniors card is also accepted for non-funded programs. If enrolling online, your concession/pension/seniors card must be presented at our office prior to commencement.
There are no refunds for missed classes. If you wish to withdraw from a course, you must notify us at least five working days before the course begins in order to obtain a refund. Notification of withdrawal must be made in writing and addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. A refund will be made less a $50 administration charge.
Course commencement is subject to sufficient enrolments – minimum and maximum class sizes apply to all courses. In the event of a course cancellation all fees will be refunded in full by direct payment to your nominated bank account. Our fees policy can be provided on request.
On-site child care is available to support parents/grandparents studying at the Bridge – fees may apply. Free child care is provided for students attending ACFE-funded classes, subject to availability and eligibility. The Bridge is registered for the Child Care Subsidy; up to 85% of childcare fees (including 3-year-old kinder) may be claimed by eligible families.

We are closed on public holidays. Some courses may operate during school holidays; your tutor will advise if this is the case.
The Bridge will advise students prior to course commencement if there are course material fees to be paid. This is a separate payment, in addition to the course fee.
