Hand Sewing · Upcycling · Workshops

Working it out!

After many months of over thinking about how I was going to start sewing classes, what I was going to teach, where I would hold them etc. I have finally taken the plunge and set up a small selection of workshops in the lovely Art Office in Cheltenham.

If you are in Cheltenham  then come and look me up. There are 4 classes, all suitable for adult beginners, each class teaches a couple of stitch types and a short project that the stitches can be applied to.

The classes can be taken separately or as a group of 4. The aim is that I will release a block of classes for people to attend teaching various different ways of hand sewing.

Later I would like to move into applied textile classes such as felting, but still with the stitching element.

I use hand sewing a lot to take up hems, ( at least an inch off of all trouser as I am on the short side!) fix small areas of mending, also hand gathering as well as decorative purposes.

It’s a great way to relax, portable and keeps your brain ticking over!
