During the school holidays we run a small selection of our sewing workshops for children aged 10 years and over. If your child is over 14, we suggest looking at our regular program of workshops.

These sessions are planned for selected evenings and give you the opportunity to come in and take advantage of our full studio setup. With a maximum of 6 participants, each will get exclusive use of one of our 4x4metre sewing stations. Each station is kitted out with; sewing machine, overlocker, steam generator iron, shears and cutting equipment, sewing kits loaded with tools and just about everything we could think of that you may need. Access to the cutting room/drafting tables is included.

Grab the project you’ve been planning to create and make it happen with the added support you need. Complete your project, at your pace. One of our expert teachers is on hand to assist participants with simple things like finding all you’ll need, to providing advice on the best techniques suited to your project.
What to bring:
- Your fabric, notions, haberdashery.
- Note – pattern-making paper and pattern-making card, as well as a small range of haberdashery, is available for sale.
You’ve got your project ready to go, or maybe even underway and want to use a dedicated space to really get some work done! This session is flexible enough to allow for participants at varying levels. However, you will need to know how to thread and operate a sewing machine (maybe not specifically our machines, we can show you the nuances).

The pleasant findings from our online workshops:
As we run more an more online workshops and private lessons, we are finding that there a lot of pleasant advantages to this delivery mode and we wanted to share them with you.
You can learn in the comfort of your own home, we’ve had students snuggled up on the couch, professionally setup at their work from home desks, cleverly tucked away in their crafting corner or bolstered by pillows in their comfy beds!
Tardiness is avoided because you don’t have to plan your public transport trip, or juggle travel time and parking, then finding the venue. It’s never been easier to avoid being late to class.
While we’re all further apart, this delivery method means we’ve never been closer! By using multiple cameras you get to see what your teacher is doing in different ways. See your teacher like she’s at your kitchen table, or view what she’s doing as if you were peering right over their shoulder.
You can access new support, you still have your detailed handouts and we’re adding more video references on YouTube. During class we can share more references during discussions.
With our teacher and host model for workshops it’s focused and allows you to engage with teachers and the other participants. We have a host who liaises throughout the class via the chat, relaying questions without interrupting the teacher’s audio.
New Online Workshops
We have started offering online workshops! This week we added a whole new class to our line up – How to Use Your Sewing Machine.
We know that people often buy machines but things don’t go to plan and sometimes that shiny new machines doesn’t make it out of the box. Or, those bird’s nest threads underneath your fabric and other things that go wrong were just too much frustration – we get it and we’re here to help. This newest workshop is a 2 hour workshop to give you the confidence to start to play around on your new sewing machine.
