Sewing Classes. Textile Art Workshops.

Learn how to sew, improve your dressmaking, or take a creative textile art workshop or machine embroidery workshop.

Sewing classes are available during daytimes, evenings and weekends. There’s Beginners and refresher classes,  dressmaking courses or shorter 1-day events to focus on specific techniques. Overlockers are a mystery to many so learn how to get the best from yours. Soft furnishing workshops will give you the knowledge and confidence to make your own professional-looking curtains and cushions.

There are sewing classes for children during every school holiday, and an after-school sewing club in term times.
