Sewing Classes

Book in for some private sewing classes and enjoy low cost, three hour sewing sessions for one, two or three. You will receive personalised tuition as Gaye guides you through the basics or helps you with a project of your choice.
Come for a customised one-to-one class,  bring a friend or two or have a sewing party!
The class will be guided by what you (and your friends) want to learn – from sewing basics to special projects. Sewing sessions can be repeated at intervals and times that suit you. Beverages and snacks provided.

If you are interested in coming to one of our scheduled sewing classes, see what’s coming up on our Textile Workshops page
