Come along to one of our Basics sessions or enjoy some relaxing hand sewing and mending in one of our textile workshops. As well as spending an enjoyable and rewarding few hours, our workshops will equip you with valuable sewing skills that can be applied to many textile projects. With our emphasis on upcycling and sustainability, you will gain the know-how to make clothes and homewares you can cherish, and to extend the life of your wardrobe favourites.
