Classes, Workshops & Summer Courses

Weekly Classes:-

Are you fed up with the clothes on offer in the shops? Do you have the ideas for your own designs but lack the skills to be able to make them? Well let us bring out your creative side. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done any sewing before, or if you are happy and confident behind your SEWING MACHINE. Come along to our Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday classes and our small, informal and friendly group will have you creating and having fun along the way no matter what your starting level.

“RECYCLING“, GENERAL SEWING & PATTERN CUTTING are all topics we cover and you can choose which ones you want to explore or learn more about.  You’ll be amazed at your newly found sewing and design skills!  You’ll be able to recycle, or ‘re-cut’ pre-loved garments from your wardrobe or charity shop and make totally unique and stylish pieces out of virtually nothing! The skills you’ll acquire also mean you’ll also be proficient enough to create those perfectly fitted patterns or tackle those wonderful designs that up to now you’ve only dreamed of.  Scared of zips? Tremble at the thought of making button holes? Don’t worry. We’ll go through all the various methods you can use and you’ll soon find yourself wondering what all the fuss was about! (You can use our machines for free whilst you are in class but pattern paper, toile and zips etc. will incur extra, nominal charges.)

Fashion & Design Classes:-

Do you dream of starting your own fashion line or working as a designer? On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I offer 1:1 classes at 15 per hour. Here you can develop your own blocks, work on your own business idea or project or  learn about the History of Fashion and the Fundamentals of design. (What constitutes ‘good ‘ design and what you need to consider when designing)  If you wish, we can even cover illustration, designing a range and mood boards so you can create your collection and then move to pattern cutting for it…..

All options or modules needed for realising your dream are available, it just needs you and I to sit down and discuss what your aims are and how often you would like to study.

1:1 classes  running on Wednesday and Friday are from 10:00am till 1:0pm and 1:30pm till 4:30pm but these can be varied to suit your own circumstances and preferences.
