Sew in Summer workshop
Enjoy a relaxed learning environment and pick up new skills in dressmaking and sewing.
These informal sessions have been specifically set up to enable existing and new learners to extend their sewing skills during the summer.
So often people have the best intentions to sew frequently, between courses, but then they get stuck on something specific, and items remain unfinished.
This mixed ability setting, enables learners to gain inspiration from their peers whilst obtaining essential knowledge and information from their tutor, thereby allowing them to move forward.
