WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE

Attendees work at that their own pace in a relaxed and friendly environment, with as much guidance as you need to help you complete your project.

Your chosen project can remain at our premises until you have finished.  We only request that it's not a big item as storage for student projects is limited.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD FIRST PROJECT?

For a complete beginner a good first project is something like a small chair, a stool, ottoman or a headboard. Avoid curves, like tub chairs, as they require more advanced skills.

It is better not to get your top fabric until after your first class, as we will advise what you need to take into consideration when choosing the type/colour/pattern of fabric as well as the amount needed. And there will be plenty to do on your chosen project before it needs the top fabric!
