Claire Humphries

← Back to Tutors

Claire is a qualified fashion designer and has been a professional dressmaker for many years. While working in bridal and evening wear she developed her skills in surface embellishment leading to a love of free hand machine embroidery. She is an enthusiastic teacher with lots of patience and great advice and experience to share. Her approach is refreshing, exciting and with an absolute eye on quality.  She is bound to inspire and guide those around her – both experienced people and those new to the art of sewing.

“Tutor was really patient, helpful and enthusiastic.  The food was fantastic and it was a great opportunity to spend the day doing something you love.”
