If you are a complete beginner, do not get a fabric that is too thin, or it will curl up when trying to sew. Sequinned, embellished and velvet fabrics are not suitable for this workshop, or beginners.
Your safety is important to us!
We will now be reducing the size of the workshop from 8 people to 4 people per class, to adhere to the social distancing measures. As we are reducing the class numbers, it is important that students adhere and respect our cancellation policy, until we can get business back to normal, and teach at the required capacity.
On entering, we will have sanitiser stations for you to to freshen up. All machinery, sewing stations, and tools you will be using, will be sanitised before you arrive, and between each session.
At your sewing station you will also have sanitiser wipes, should you feel you need to use them.
Our lavatories are communal, but they will be supplied with santiser wipes, hand wash and disposable towels.
What do I need to bring?
Bring along 2 metres of stretch jersey or lycra, go as bold and bright as you like!
Not suitable for sequinned, velevt, beaded or silky, soft fabrics. Remember your fabric must be STRETCH fabric.
Do I need to provide information before the day?
No, just book your place and turn up on the day!
Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.
We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people all arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, leaves us with less time to teach, and not completing the workshop. Which in turn, leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. Therefore, we are very strict with our door closing policy.
This is a 2 hour workshop.
This workshop is suitable for 14 years and above. All students under the age of 17, must be accompanied by a participating adult
