Learn dressmaking with Amanda Walker.

Amanda’s Summer School is a series of 3 full day workshops designed to get you started in dressmaking. Each day is progressively more challenging than the last and new skills will be learnt on each. Equally you will be able to complete a garment on each day, so they are also ideal to book individually

On Day 1 Amanda will guide you through the process of cutting from a pattern through to making a finished pair of pyjama bottoms.

On Day 2 Amanda will guide you through the process of cutting from a pattern through to making a finished little girls dress.

On Day 3 you will make a little boy's shirt

Alternatively you can come along to any or all of the days and follow your own project, including those you are stuck with (please contact us first).

Old Bank Studios offers a wide range of art, craft and textile courses and work-shops. Based in a glorious Edwardian banking hall, our fully equipped studios provide ideal spaces where students can work in a relaxed, ambient atmosphere. Located in the heart of Old Harwich, we are just a few yards from the Electric Palace Cinema.

Harwich Town Railway Station is less than a five minute walk away, with hourly trains to Manningtree, where there are mainline connections to Colchester, Chelmsford, London, Ipswich and Norwich. If you are coming by car, there is normally plenty of on road parking, otherwise there is a public car park a one minute walk away. It is always possible to drop off right at our front doors.
