Sewing Workshops

Get sewing skills worthy of the Great British Sewing Bee by joining our FREE weekly sewing workshops!

Starting from Wednesday 18th January and running until Wednesday 29th March, our skilled tutor Vanessa will take you through the steps needed to confidently create your own projects at home. The weekly workshops will teach you the basics like how to use a sewing machine, different fabrics, seams and hems and you’ll also learn how to make your own handy shopping bag and some simple children clothes.

Our workshops are totally free and open to anyone aged 16+. We want everyone who joins us to be able to take on simple fabric repairs at home and feel confident in taking on their own projects, which will save money and create less waste, as well as being a great hobby. You’ll be able to learn in a friendly ‘no pressure’ environment and because the classes a small, Vanessa will be able to support you on a 121 basis as well as part of the group.

We will supply everything needed to join our workshops (including refreshments), but if you would like to bring your own sewing machine to learn on, you’re very welcome.
