Workshop • £75 • Sat 9th July • BOOK YOUR PLACE HERE*
Join us for a day of sewing!
Whether you are a beginner, or whether you have the experience but would like to enjoy time with a group of creative people, you will go home with a finished dress that you have made yourself. Suitable for any skill level, you can make the Triple Tuck Smock with help every step of the way.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP – Saturday 9th July
The workshop runs from 10am – 4pm and includes the cost of the pattern and a light lunch. Laura, the designer, will be there initially to meet you and get you started on the project. Tara will be your teacher for the day – she has a relaxed, cheerful manner and plenty of experience. She will be able to help you with every element, from taking your own measurements, to threading the machine to creating the perfect neckline facing.
You do not need to bring anything except your own fabric and thread. There are sewing machines, scissors and everything you could need on hand, however, if you prefer to sew on your own machine, that is fine too. You are very welcome to bring your own.
The venue is Hub 26, a light and modern studio in Cleckheaton, just off junction 26 of the M62, with a capacity for up to 12 people. So you can be assured that you will be in a small class with plenty of help if you need it. There is plenty of parking.
