Sewing Classes. Creative Workshops.

Multi-award winning sewing classes and creative workshops.  Learn how to sew, make, repair or alter clothes in a dressmaking course, or take a creative textile workshop or machine embroidery workshop.

Classes are taught by Jen, a lifelong sewing enthusiast and degree-qualified Textile Artist/Designer. No other Edinburgh sewing classes or creative workshops offer more variety or a structured tuition programme with back-up support for continued quality learning. Come for just one course or dip in and out as you require.  Or like so many other Artisan Stich students,  return again and again to continue your sewing journey, it’s up to you.

Sewing classes are available during daytimes, evenings and weekends. There’s Beginners sewing courses, refresher sewing 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 in the overlocker class. Soft furnishing workshops will give you the knowledge and confidence to sew professional-quality curtains and cushions. In fact, no other Edinburgh sewing course provider offers a greater variety of topics or skill-levels than Artisan Stitch.

The series of 3-day Summer school courses are the opportunity to really get to grips with a new subject. These intensive sewing courses make a perfect activity holiday for your staycation.

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