Our Sewing Workshop is a place where fashion projects take shape, the time is measured in centimeters, and the day goes by to the rhythm of stitching sounds made by the sewing machines. Here, students learn the art and craft of sewing. They learn traditional and modern sewing techniques, weaving, embroidery, garment construction, and spatial thinking. They also learn all there is to know about different types of fabrics and fabric dyeing techniques.

Over time, words such as “topstitching”, “tacking/basting”, “trimming”, “overlocking”, and other sewing terms, stop sounding like words in a foreign language, and students create unique garments and accessories.

What equipment is available?

Our Sewing Workshop is a bright, 130 square meter room, furnished with professional sewing equipment. Students have at their disposal industrial grade sewing machines with many sewing features, such as a heavy-duty sewing machine perfect for big and multi-layered projects like furniture covers, a cover stich machine, overlocks for sewing stretch fabrics and decorative hem stitching, a leather sewing machine, an industrial grade Zig Zag sewing machine as well as a professional fabric pasting machine, two steam irons, and vacuum ironing tables.

The Sewing Workshop is a space conducive to creative thinking and often serves as a backstage for the university fashion shows. Here, students learn everything there is to know about fashion design, meet with teachers, and discuss their creative ideas.
