Our programme of specialist short sewing courses are ideal for students who want to try something new or explore a specific dressmaking or pattern cutting project in more depth. They range between 1 and 4 days duration and are usually limited to just 7 students per class to give more individual attention to each person.
The sewing studio is fully equipped with equipment, materials and haberdashery. Elna and baby lock sewing machine and overlockers are available for you to use, or you can bring your own machine along.
Some of the course prices include materials. Please check individual course details to see what materials are included in the course fee.
