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).
