Beginners Sewing Workshop in our Studio
Sorry, out of stock
Learn to sew with us on a Full Day workshop in the Crafty Studio!
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!
The beginners full day class is £80 and this includes all your materials and teaching in a small group with an experienced, knowledgable and friendly tutor.
You have the choice to bring your own machine or use or workshop machines.
What will I need to bring?
- A packed lunch or money to buy lunch at a local cafe or shops - please note, no microwave or fridge facilities are available
Everything else including equipment and materials will be provided.
