COVID-19 Update:

Your safety is important to us!

We will now be reducing the size of the workshop from 6 people to 3 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 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 sanitiser wipes, hand wash and disposable towels

What do I need to bring?
A calculator

Do I need to provide information on 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.

Workshop duration
This is a 6 hour workshop. Classes start promptly, so make sure you are on time.
Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find the studio.
Doors close 15 minutes after the start time and latecomers will not be admitted.
