Dressmaking and sewing courses
I am offering to a limited number of students the chance to learn from me: dressmaking, sewing, pattern design, and fashion design-related subjects. Whether you are after lifelong skills like making or mending your own clothes, to pursuing a professional career; whether you have a background in fashion or you are a complete beginner, my lessons cater for everyone. With decades of experience as a fashion designer and garment technologist, both as a freelance as well as developing my own brand, and can help you to develop your designs whilst you learn.
For students, makers, learners and everyone, you can book me for 1 session ( 2 hours long ), 6 sessions ( 12 hours long silver package) or 10 sessions (20 hours gold package), and the lessons will be tailored to your needs. With a silver or gold package, you can create any garment that you like or one that you have designed, or you can use the lessons to learn more specific skills like pattern cutting, usage of sewing machines, or sewing techniques, for instance. The packages include just the use of machines and tools, although not fabrics (these would have to be provided by yourself depending on the project that you are making).
If you prefer to do a pre-planned course I recommend starting with any of the courses below, to learn the basics properly by making a complete garment from scratch. These courses include everything needed to make the garment pictures, from patterns to fabrics, haberdashery, tools, machines, etc., hence the price is a bit higher than the packages. Lessons can be booked well in advance to just days in advance.
