COVID-19 Update:

Your safety is important to us!

We will now be reducing the size of the workshop from 6 people to 3 people per class, to adhere to the social distancing measures. As we are reducing the class numbers, it is important that students adhere and respect our cancellation policy, until we can get business back to normal, and teach at the required capacity.

On entering, we will have sanitiser stations for you to freshen up. All machinery, sewing stations, and tools you will be using, will be sanitised before you arrive, and between each session.

At your sewing station you will also have sanitiser wipes, should you feel you need to use them.

Our lavatories are communal, but they will be supplied with sanitiser wipes, hand wash and disposable towels

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

2 metres of stretch fabric which is 150cm wide. (Fabric must be 150cm wide, or the pattern will not fit)

DO I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION BEFORE I ATTEND?

Please let us know your average retail size before attending.

RESCHEDULE & REFUND POLICY

Please note: Doors close 15 minutes after the start time on all workshops.

We do ask our attendees to be on time. As we will not be able to go over missed content, health and safety once missed. We have had an issue with a lot of people arriving at different times, which disrupts the teaching, and leaves us with complaints from people who have arrived on time. So we are very strict with our door closing policy.

You can cancel or amend a booking up to 5 days before your booking date. Outside of this policy there is a £15 rebooking fee on this workshop.

Only one reschedule permitted per booking. We do not offer free reschedules or refunds to latecomers, or outside of our cancellation policy.

WORKSHOP DURATION

This is a 2 hour workshop.

Please make sure you give yourself plenty of time to find the studio.

AGE RESTRICTIONS:

This workshop is suitable for 14 years and above. All students under the age of 17, must be accompanied by a participating adult.
