Each tutor has extensive sewing experience and will guide you, patiently, through a wide range of projects. You will be encouraged to develop your own “style”, to choose your own colour and fabrics and to produce your own original work.

One Day Workshops

One day workshops are frequently held on Saturdays. These will be focused on a particular skill, design or project.
Please check through to see if there is anything that appeals to you and get in touch by email or telephone to let us know if you’d like to come.
