…at the home of sewing & textiles in Bristol

 Here at the school we celebrate the craft and skill of all aspects of sewing, textiles, needlework and creative art projects. Whether you want to sew as a hobby or get a taster for a career change, we have something for everyone.  Learn pattern cutting, willow sculpture, knitting or how to make a dress,  we have all sorts of workshops & courses. We’re here to help you learn the art of dressmaking, soft furnishings and to express your creativity through the making of gifts and lovely things for your home using various techniques.

We have just relocated to new premises offering a cosy, creative environment in our brand new garden studio. With outdoor seating & relaxing area to spend time having lunch or coffee & a cake making it an ideal place to unwind with like minded people whilst learning a new skill.

Join our friendly, experienced tutors on one of our informal, relaxed workshops to learn something new or take your skills to the next level. We provide all the equipment, including sewing machines, so you can just come along and get started, all refreshments and some materials are included in the price (please check course details for more information).  We only book 4 people on each workshop (with the exception of knitting & crochet) so you receive plenty of help in a small group.

If you wish to bring your own sewing machine along to the workshop it must be under 2 years old with a warranty or it should be PAT tested (certificate will need to be produced).

A small amount of haberdashery and fabric is available to buy at the workshop, for further enquiries please email me.
