For small or tall humans wanting to learn tips and tricks!
I offer classes to individuals or groups and have taught a range of ages, abilities and backrounds. I am open to working with what inspires the student to want to sew, from designing and making clothes and accessories, mending and alterations and customising clothes. I welcome students to bring their own materials but always have a certain amount of supplies. This is a continuation from the work I was doing in London, teaching children sewing classes with the team at ‘Little Hands Design’.
I am more keen than ever to pass on my cut and sew skills, to as many children as possible! I will be forever grateful for being taught these handcraft skills by my Muma and Grandma. These self-sustainable skills have not only supported a fabulous career but kept me out of a lot of trouble! In my mind, creativity is the key to happiness and success. Sewing is a form of mindful meditation to me. It also helped support my education financially, even before I apprenticed and trained professionally. Its very self-empowering, in more ways than one. I have always loved children and encouraged them to use their imagination and handcraft skills as much as possible. I combine the tutorials for Handcraft skills and with relaxing breathing techniques from my yoga teacher training.
Its a joy to see the children improve week to week, with the work we do.
