If you want to build your dressmaking and tailoring skills in the company of a small group of dressmaking enthusiasts, guided by professional seamstress, Claire Humphries, this is the course for you! Over the course of 6 mornings you will work on your own particular dressmaking projects. Each week there will be a short learning session focused on a technique chosen by the group according to the demands of their projects e.g. zips, button holes, collar etc…. This will be followed by time to practise and work on your own projects with Claire on hand to guide you.

A soup and pud lunch is available for an extra weekly cost if you let us know.

What to expect

A weekly course at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create and develop your skills. The weekly format allows you to develop your work and ideas between sessions, you can work more at your own pace and really feel you have moved on from week one to the end.

You can expect the usual warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet and get to know like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences.

There may be two courses going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the others are up to!

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-session break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Due to the requirement for change-overs between morning/afternoon/evening sessions for weekly courses, the finish time given is fairly crucial – the session should not overrun.

All refreshments are included before and during the session each week although lunch is not. However, by popular demand we do provide a light lunch consisting of soup or similar and a pudding from 12:00pm until just after 1:00pm so that anyone attending either morning or afternoon sessions need not go hungry! The cost is £5 and it can be booked and paid for each week for the following week. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you require lunch for week 1.

What you’ll need to bring with you

Please bring with you a project/s that you wish to work on together with the following:

Your sewing machine, attachments and instruction book
Sewing scissors
Pins and needles
Tape measure
Quick Unpick
Assorted threads

A notebook for recording tips and techniques might be a good idea too.
