Make, Create, Sew

Our aim at the School is to give students quality time with the tutors so most of our workshops never have more than 6 spaces. Based in our light, airy studio, each person has their own sewing machine and a basic sewing pack containing, tape measure, pins, scissors etc. to use whilst you are with us. We also have refreshments available to everyone throughout the classes.

If you would like to practice your sewing or if you need space for cutting out, the workshop and facilities are available for £7.50 per person per hour (weekdays only). You can also help yourself to refreshments. Please contact me for further details.
