Cap making workshops

In-person course
Peter foster - - #36080

Brilliant day learning how to make a cap everybody had a great day

Beginners Pattern Cutting Workshop - The Dress or Shirt Block

In-person course
Edna Leys - - #35117

Peter and Paula are very welcoming and attentive. Peter took us step by step through the process of pattern making and using a calico practice piece we were able to check out whether our pattern had worked. Like me the participants were a bit uncertain that they were able to see the process through but we all achieved it successfully and as a bonus Peter showed us ways of adapting the basic pattern. I can’t recommend this course more highly
