We run regular dressmaking courses and sewing courses for beginners and more proficient sewers. Owing to the recent COVID pandemic please email us for bookings. Individual sessions are available too. Learn to make cushions, sew a make up bag, learn applique, beginners patchwork, make a beach bag, make a clasp bag. Learn to make your own clothes from the beginning, make pyjama trousers, make a top, make a shift dress, understand sewing patterns and create your own wardrobe.
During the course,we will cover how to use and understand commercial patterns. Starting with pyjama trousers, we will make a top and move on to a project of your choice. You will have the patterns to take home with you for the first two projects and you will choose and buy your own pattern for a dress/skirt etc . You will need to bring along fabric for each of the items. The clothes pictured here have all been made in our courses.
If you have made some clothes before and have found sewing patterns mystifying, or if you have completed our beginner's dressmaking and would like to make more advanced clothes why not join us and we can help with alternative projects too.
