Choose a small group or private tuition
Learn to sew in a class setting or choose one-to-one private sewing tuition. You’ll learn at your own pace, build your confidence, and sew whatever you want.
Beautiful award-winning studio
The Sewing Shed is exactly that: a purpose-built studio dedicated to sewing lessons. Modern, bright and airy, it’s a great place to learn to sew.
Wide range of classes
You can learn anything from dressmaking (including fitting, and adapting patterns) to how to make soft furnishings. Our sewing classes will teach you to make interior items such as curtains, Roman blinds, cushions and loose covers. You’ll cover techniques such as patchwork, quilting, appliqué, concealed zips, free-motion embroidery, piping, bags, bunting, and lots more.
Brand-new Janome sewing machines
There’s no need to bring your own sewing machine (although you’d be welcome to do so). There’s a fully computerised Janome sewing machine for every student. You can even use an overlocker in class.
