Spend 6 evenings in the textile studio learning to make clothes – any garment you like! – £165 pp 6.15pm to 8.45pm – various dates to choose from.

Kick-start 2024 learning a new hobby and elevating your creative skills! Come and discover new dressmaking skills and make unique, made to measure clothes!

During your first class, you can bring in a shop-bought pattern to work from – this can be any garment you like!

Together, over the course of six weeks and with the help of your talented tutor, you will learn step by step how to follow your pattern, successfully make the garment and leave with the skills to make many more and confidence to try other patterns too!

Dressmaking is a wonderful, relaxing and mindful craft but best of all, at the end of six weeks, you’ll have a stunning garment of your choice handmade entirely by you!

Knowledge required:
You should have some machine sewing abilities – know how to wind spool & thread up a machine and have sewn simple projects.

Please join a beginner’s sewing class if you have no previous machine sewing skills or would like to brush up on skills before joining the beginner’s dressmaking class.

What to bring:
Please bring in a shop-bought pattern to work from. Please be sure to check the sizes on dress pattern – sometimes they are U.S. sizing and also sometimes small made – you may need a bigger size than what you’d take in a shop. An email with full details of what to bring will be sent out when you have reserved your place.

Session repeats:
This class series runs over 6 consecutive sessions, at the same time every week.

Multiple dates available starting in January – booking essential only 6 people per class.
