We offer 6-week sewing courses costing £90 (including the use of one sewing machine per student plus an overlocker). Courses run at the following times; once you’ve chosen a day and time, you’ll attend all 6 (or 3) weeks on the same day and at the same time (eg always Monday evenings or Friday afternoons).
We also offer 3-week taster sewing courses in July, at a cost of £45. These offer a great introduction to The Sewing Shed.

Our classes are always fully booked, so please do plan ahead to avoid disappointment. Student retention is really high and we are currently running a reserve list for ALL sewing classes. The good news is that we are planning an expanded calendar of classes and workshops for 2018, so do get in touch if you would like to be added to the reserve list. Latest news and last minute availability is also posted on our Facebook page so do LIKE the page so you are kept up to date.
Please read our booking terms & conditions carefully before booking (they’re only short!). Do also check your advance diary, because any money you’ve paid us can’t be refunded if you discover you’re double-booked.
You can choose what to make; just book the dates that suit you and we can discuss what you’d like to learn to sew.
