Sewing workshops

Receive expert tuition on a sewing project of your choice.

Our qualified tutor, Suzanne Sheil, is on hand to give you help, advice and tips on your projects and ideas.

In our sewing workshops we don’t want to dictate what you can and can’t make. You have the freedom to choose your own project – a simple cushion, bunting, a fancy dress costume or whatever other ideas you have in mind. Suzanne will simply guide you through the process and help you wherever you need it.

What skills do I need?

Basic sewing machine skills and know how to sew in a straight line.

Choose a project to match your level. Learn basics like how to put zips in garments or more advanced skills such as how to adapt a pattern to match your body shape. If you have no idea where to start, Suzanne will be on hand to help you choose a suitable starter project.

What will I get from the class?

The “choose your own project” approach allows you to get whatever new skills you want from the class. You might really want to push yourself and try an exciting new project from scratch, or you may just want to brush up on your knowledge of an area of sewing that you haven’t done in a while.

Sewing in a fun, relaxed atmosphere

The Sewing School is a very friendly environment which is designed to help you build your knowledge of sewing and make some new friends along the way!

A lot of people that have been coming to the classes enjoy the social side of the 2 hours as much as they enjoy the sewing. The open layout encourages people to get stuck in and help each other. There is also plenty of room to work quietly if needed.
