People learn in many different ways, I always prefer to be shown something and practice with advice on hand than to read instructions and struggle alone. For this reason I offer a one to one tuition service covering all you see in my courses and more.
If you have a specific project or subject you wish to learn then sessions can be tailored just for you, or if you simply want to get started and prefer not be in a group environment I am happy to help.
For rates and availability contact me by phone or e-mail and I will be happy to arrange time with you.
I undertake many individual commissions and am happy to consider any request for the production of a bespoke item:
If you have found that perfect fabric and would like coordinating cushions, curtains, chair seats or lampshades produced;
if you have some precious clothing keepsakes you would like turned into a useful item to cherish;
if you have a specific dressmaking or interiors project you would like to work through step by step.
I am more than happy to discuss your project and help with the design process to produce a truely lovely item for you.
If your child (and possibly mum or dad) would like to learn to use a sewing machine I can offer sessions to introduce them to the set up of the machine and creation of simple items.
If your child has an interest in textiles, fashion, fashion design, pattern drafting, creating their own clothes, costumes or soft furnishings, I can offer step by step tuition to make thier ideas come to life.
If your child would like to work on a portfolio of projects and designs for presentaion to potential employers or further education providers I can also help with this.
As I teach most sessions at my home in Church Crookham, siblings are welcome along and sessions are very flexible so mum or dad can either enjoy a cup of tea, spend time with siblings or join in the lessons alongside their child/children.
I can also offer small group sessions, either one off or a short series of sessions at my workshop in Hartley Wintney and am happy to tailor these sessions to the needs and interests of the group
