Why not join me at my inspiring and welcoming studio in Dumfries where I host a variety of sociable sewing and creative workshops. Its a place to learn, make, relax and enjoy creative adventures. You’ll learn heaps of new skills, meet like minded people and find out how fun and rewarding it can be to make your own. Workshops are taught by me and from time to time by other invited crafty souls, keen to pass on their passion & expertise to others. Hopefully there's a workshop that takes your fancy, if not then I can happily be guided by requests.
Our inspiring & creative studio/workshop space at Solway House is situated within the stunning grounds of the Crichton in Dumfries, South West Scotland. We're just over an hour away from Glasgow and just a hop & a skip over the border, with Carlisle around 45 minutes away. I've been teaching classes in Dumfries to happy sewists for over 7 years now.
If you'd prefer to have my undivided attention and like to work on a specific project you'd love to work then why not book a private class. A 1:1 Tuition session can be scheduled to suit us both, during the day, during the evening or weekend. They can also be tailored to your individual needs at my studio in Dumfries using our or your own sewing machine.
I can also happily arrange Crafty Hen Parties, Private Parties or just a well needed Creative Catch Up with friends. I am also able to offer tutuion elsewhere and can travel to your venue as a guest tutor. Once or twice a year I also teach workhops at HOPE & ELVIS.
As well as teaching regular workshops I am always happy to discuss ideas with companies, organisations and events organisers. Whether thats for a tailored full scale workshop, a taster session or a live demonstration. I have previously taught workshops at the Country Living Magazine Christmas Fair in both Glasgow & Harrogate teaching daily classes to 200 visitors during the shows. I've also delivered workshops for our local college at their very first staff Health & Well being day. Just get in touch to discuss the finer details.
Many of the workshops in Dumfries just involve you turning up! We provide equipment, materials, fabrics from my stash and tools of the trade. We are delighted that Brother Sewing Machines UK have offered their support, so we now have six wonderful shiny & new Brother Sewing Machines you can use at sewing workshops in Dumfries, sponsored and supplied by Superior Sewing Centre, Carlisle.
Why not join our MAILING LIST to find out when classes are listed or join me over on Facebook for workshops in DUMFRIES to find up what we're up to here at the studio. Its usually the first place I list details of new workshops when they have been added to the website. .
I look forward to welcoming you along to a workshop sometime soon!
