Summer studio 

Join me in the studio for a weekend of uninterrupted sewing. 

Dressmaking weekend

Sewing weekend: Sat 6th & Sun 7th August

Location: The vestry, Ebenezer st, SA38 9BS

Take a weekend in my studio to give yourself the time to make the clothes you've been thinking of creating.

There will be no expectation to follow a particular project or get to a certain point by a certain time but I will be on hand to help with all aspects of fittings and making. 

Pick amongst my selection of patterns or bring your own project.

Because everyone is working on their own project...​

  • You get to make *exactly* what you want. 

  • There is no expectation to get to a certain point at a certain time. 

  • You have lots of one-to-one tuition and fitting time with me. 

  • You absorb all the creative feel in the room and will take home more ideas that you came in with. 

 

If the idea of choosing your own project is actually a bit daunting​...

  • I will help you to make a plan based on your objectives. We can hop on a zoom call to discuss pattern options and make sure you are clear about what to bring. 

 

Spaces are limited to 6

This is about making time for you to sew, so...

  • Freshly cooked lunch and snacks are included as part of the weekend. 

  • You get to leave your machine and project out overnight - bliss!

  • Everything you need is there. You will be spending the weekend in my creative studio. Fabric, books, patterns, a big cutting table, overlocker, haberdashery... it's all there.

  • No interruption... There will be no having to drop what you are doing to (insert)  -  whatever chore gets in the way of creativity -  Isn't that the dream?
