Courses

Our courses are limited to 6 people per session at most so you are guaranteed to get all the support you need from your tutor. The materials are supplied and you can even borrow a sewing machine if you need to as we have plenty on site although if one is needed for the course we recommend you bring your own so we can help you learn to use it. If you need any more information about a course before booking please contact the team as bookings are non refundable past a cancellation point. Please see the terms and conditions for more details.

We understand that everyone is different and that modern life does not allow us all to do things in perfect timetables so if you cannot see the course you want or it is full then please contact us as we can set up a course just for you.  One to one or up to six of you at a time we can tailor make the course to suit what you want to learn and when you want to learn it. A full list of what we teach is available here. Larger groups are not a problem either as we can come to you too. See our visiting tutor page for more information.
