Helping You Learn to Sew!

Workshops

Focussed sessions where you will work on and complete a garment within the lesson time - workshops are great for learning new garment techniques, and fun, relaxing weekends. Great for those tired of mass-produced shop bought garments, or anyone who wants to bring a bit of their own personality to the clothes they wear. Participants must be capable sewers, with recent basic garment making experience.
