Limited to five people.

Some of us were lucky enough to learn to sew at a young age, either at school or by a parent or relative. Today schools don’t often include sewing in their curriculum which means many people know nothing about the craft and one end of the needle from the other.

We strongly believe that sewing can be beneficial in so many ways and we want to share our love of the craft with as many people as possible.

Creating something useful and beautiful from scratch does wonders to your self-confidence. Join the sewing revolution! Once you’ve mastered the basics, you’ll be able to

  • Make your own clothes
  • Customise garments to create your individual style
  • Save money by doing your own alterations and repairs
  • Make unique handmade gifts

You’ll also reduce your impact on the environment by sharing left over fabrics with friends and using scraps for small projects.

During the course we’ll teach you about your sewing machine and basic maintenance. We’ll advise on the best makes and suppliers if you want to buy your own.

So, if you’ve thought about sewing but never got around to it, now’s your chance to learn how to use a sewing machine in a small, friendly group with a supportive tutor.

About Selina Carrington-Jones

Selina mainly taught herself how to sew when she couldn’t find a course which met her needs. She devised a short course that teaches you all the techniques at the same time as making items.


All materials and equipment are provided for this course.
