If you are a beginner wishing to learn the basics of sewing or if you would simply like to refresh old skills these 3 hour workshops are designed to cover a variety of basic machine and hand sewing skills.

The aim of these workshops is for you to have fun making a fun and useful bag  to take home whilst gaining confidence in using a sewing machine and learning or developing the sewing skills that you most want to focus on.
