Course Description

We all get to a stage in our sewing journey where we just want to improve those little things that make a big difference to the finish of our garments. If you are at this stage, or just want to spend some time slowing down and learning some couture hand-finishing techniques, we have curated this special workshop just for you. As well as enjoying the art and mindfulness of making things by hand, you will come away from this workshop with some essential skills to raise your projects to the next level. Enjoy the time to slow down and learn some couture hand-sewing techniques and meet likeminded people. By the end of the class, you will have your own samples and booklet to take away as a reference and the confidence to use couture techniques to give your garments the professional touch!
