You’ll get plenty of personal attention in all our classes because the groups are kept small. You’ll have lots of opportunities to talk to your tutor and to make friends with fellow students. Class size ranges from a minimum of 2 (for Curtains & Roman Blinds) 6 in upholstery classes and 8 in sewing classes, this depends upon the complexity of the skill being taught and the level of supervision that is required for equipment. Please note class size has been currently reduced to ensure all students are socially distanced.
We always have mixed abilities in our sewing classes, so beginners are very welcome as too are the more experienced sewer who want to hone their skills. Upholstery classes are aimed at beginners too, although you can grow in the classes building up to more complicated pieces. You’ll learn in our studio, which is modern, roomy and superbly equipped – with a new Janome sewing machines for every student and bespoke cutting tables. We even have pneumatic staple guns for the Upholstery students and comfy chairs for our embroiderers. For the ability level for all other workshops please see individual craft pages.
