Beginners Sewing Classes - Home Dressmaking

The “antidote” to fast, throw away fashion

Our Dressmaking classes are great value. You will have an enjoyable day out, meet new people, learn new skills that you can use time and time again and go home with a brand new item of clothing to wear and impress your friends.

The satisfaction that comes from creating something to wear, with your own hands, for yourself, in your own style, that fits you is priceless.

Starting with simple items for beginner’s and moving onto more Intermediate styles, you can make a wide variety of garments, learn about fabrics and dressmaking patterns in a fun and social atmosphere with an expert teacher. They will teach you the most efficient sewing techniques to achieve a perfect “finish” to your sewing projects.

The classes are run in small groups so you get lots of 1 to 1 time with the teacher. Once you have gained confidence then try our Bring Your Own Project workshops where you can use the space, machines and get the support of the teacher to work on your own items.

For those who wish to become an expert seamstress or go into the fashion industry try our Professional Sewing Skills classes.


“I just wanted to say Thank you very much for an amazing course! I really was enjoying every single minute spend there and you indeed could share with us your love to sewing. Looking forward to seeing which courses in the future I will take and let you know as soon as I have decision made.”
