Do you ever feel a sense of achievement when you make something with your own hands?
Do you sometimes notice a sense of fulfilment and pride looking at you work?
Maybe even a sense of triumph?
I do (ok, I'll be honest, not always but often though) and I know many others do too that come here to spend time making and working with fabrics.
I call it "Creative Meditation' as it gives you space and time to zone out and get totally absorbed in what you do right at that moment. Which means you are in the here and now, and at the same time you are learning a new skill!
If this appeals to you come to the
Sewing Workshop for Beginners on the Saturday 3 November
as this is an ideal introduction. You will be going home with your own made projects.
In this workshop you will learn how to sew in a fun and enjoyable way. You will be shown how to set up the sewing machine and how to use a variety of stitches.
You will learn how to create button holes or put in zips plus lots of tips and tricks! Then practice these skills and gain confidence whilst making a beautiful looking product such as a bag, cushion cover, or purse, etc.
Suitable for beginners or those looking to improve their skills.
"Having attended your classes I now feel I have the confidence to continue my sewing and try new things. Your patience and skill are fantastic and I really appreciate everything you have taught me."
At the Sewing Shed we work in small groups so there is plenty of time to ask questions, receive hands on guidance and tuition.
Sewing machines and other sewing tools are available at the Sewing Shed.
When: Saturday 3 November,
Where: at the Sewing Shed Stroud.
Time: 10 pm - 4 pm
Fee: 60 including all materials.
