We're so pleased to be able to run in-person workshops at Crafty in our Makers Yard studio
Since we first opened for business in 2015 we have enabled so many people to discover a passion for sewing!
With the Return of the great British Sewing Bee, lots of people are thinking about how to start exploring new hobbies and we have had lots of enquiries about sewing workshops in our lovely studio.
Learn to sew with us on a Full Day workshop in the Crafty Studio!
Our beginners class is the ideal place to start sewing! This full day class is ideal for anyone at the start of their sewing journey.
The beginners class will cover our Start As You Mean To Sew On class in the morning, covering everything you need to know to get set up and sewing, and then in the afternoon you’ll complete a fun shopping bag project which will equip you with all the skills you need for many more exciting projects.
We'll start at the very beginning with a full run through of the parts of the sewing machine, what equipment you need (and don't need!) and how to set up the machine and your workspace ready to sew.
We'll help you create your very first stitches and over the course of the day you will complete several projects which will equip you with all the skills you need for your next sewing projects!
What will we make in the class?
In the morning we will take you through our full Start As You Mean To Sew on workshop.
In the afternoon you will create a handy tote bag to carry your sewing kit or store projects in.
