Making Clothes for Beginners: Weekend Workshop The Lighthouse
30th April - 1st May
10.00am - 5.00pm

2-day weekend workshop, 10am - 5pm both days // Level: Beginner // Instructor: Cassandra Belanger-Macindoe // Cost: £120 (inc. pattern)

This workshop is brought to you in conjunction with The Stitchery and our recent exhibition: Hello My Name is Paul Smith. It is a practical follow-up to the theory-based workshop that Cassandra will be giving at The Lighthouse on the 21st April. Find more information on that here.

Learn sewing machine basics, stitches & seams, fabric terms, simple hems and basic seam finishes. Make your very own short-sleeved shirt in a fabric of your choice and fit it to your own unique body. The shirt pattern we'll be using has been developed by Cassandra and will soon form part of a collection for Storybook Patterns; her indie pattern company due to launch later this year.

This workshop is open to complete beginners and our studio comes fully equipped with enough sewing machines for each student. But if you would like to bring your own machine, that's also fine.

To book your place on this course, you can use The Stitchery's online booking system. You can pay a deposit or, if you prefer, pay the full course amount.
