The Sewing Shed has recently moved to larger new bespoke premises and serves students from across the North and is expanding its workshops and classes for 2018.

The Sewing Shed is looking for professional enthusiastic designer makers that would love to share their passion with others. The Sewing Shed is currently looking for teachers in Beginners Dressmaking, Crochet, Embroidery, Knitting, Rag rug Making, Specialist Patchwork, Pattern Cutting & Grading and Upholstery to name a few.

You should have a passion about your topic and the patience to be able to deliver your skills to a small group of students, no more than 6 students in a class. Preferably professionally qualified or with your own established making business we would like teachers on a weekly basis, monthly basis, or 2-3 times a year. You would be self employed and have public liability insurance.

We are also looking to recruit enthusiastic sewers to run our After School Sewing Club, Young Designer classes and Holiday Workshops. If you can enthuse and relate to youngsters and have a knowledge in sewing please do get in touch. This would suit someone with a teaching assistant qualification or an undergraduate who is studying a BEd or equivalent.
