About the Course
In this workshop we will explore the possibilities of machine embroidery, water soluble fabric, needle felting and hand stitch.
The workshop will kick off with an inspirational tour of Jayne's sample archive, discussing ideas for both up-cycling old clothes and fashioning new ones through dressmaking. We will then move on to creating individual, experimental ideas in sample form. You can then move on to customising garments or creating embellishments on pattern pieces.
Jayne has been creating fabric samples for fashion and interiors for the past 20 years. Her work has sold internationally to clients such as Chanel, Balenciaga and Dior as well as high street stores including John Lewis, M&S and Gap.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
