Interested in learning to sew?

I run classes and workshops for all abilities from my studio at The Fold in Bransford, Worcestershire.

The Fold is situated close to the Malvern Hills and central to the beautiful counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

My workshops and classes are designed so there’s something for everyone, from absolute beginners to the slightly rusty and the more experienced sewing enthusiasts.


Sewing Workshops

All the scheduled workshops are repeated on various dates throughout the year.  These include ‘specialized workshops’ concentrating on specific techniques such as the ‘Zip Intensive’, which is just zips! If the scheduled dates for any of these classes doesn’t suit you, call me and we can arrange dates that do.

Check out the ‘Workshops’ page for a list of the full schedule of dates and topics.


Classes to Suit You

Lessons for individuals or small groups can be arranged to suit your needs and timing.

A One-to-one lesson:  Learn just what you need at your speed.  Sessions from one hour, or, if you prefer, regular one-to-one lessons.

Small Group teaching:  Class sizes are always kept small (max 4 people) to ensure everyone gets the attention they deserve.

Learn with friends:   Group sessions can be organized to suit your availability (3-6 people)

All  classes and workshops can be ‘run to order’ with a minimum of three people.  Most variations are possible, get in touch and let me know what you’d like to learn or want some help with.

Personal Fitting Service & Bodice Block

For the more experienced dressmaker, I also offer personal fitting.

As every dressmaker knows, it’s almost impossible to fit a garment on yourself properly. It’s vital you have someone with fitting experience to put the pins in the right place and then help you transfer the adjustments back to your pattern.

I also offer bodice block drafting for dressmakers wanting to create styles and garments for themselves. A basic bodice pattern made exclusively to fit you is the starting point from which to create your own designs.

Give me a call to discuss how I can help or book an appointment.
