ONLINE CLASSES NOW!
All my classes are now online due to the Corona virus pandemic, and it seems to be working out really well for pattern cutting and fitting! (Sewing is not so feasible as it is such small scale, and I would need specialist cameras and lighting.)
All teaching is by arrangement with you and is one to one and the cost of a 5 week, (1 hour per week), course is £30 per hour, £150 payable in advance.
Pre Covid, my classes were 2 hrs long, but working on a screen needs a bit more concentration, so an hour seems to be the right amount of time. Prices are consequently halved, and although you wouldn't get as much done in an hour as 2 hours, it seems to work well, as the time is more concentrated. You can of course continue with another batch of 5 classes to achieve the original descriptions of course content.
So please contact me on the form below (please scroll down to the bottom), to book a course, or just to discuss. I am always happy to talk to you!
I am leaving the original text below for possibly the return of face to face classes!
'I am a teacher of pattern cutting and sewing for degree level Fashion students, having been a lecturer at several different universities in the UK.
What you can learn with me is the same as I have taught on Fashion BA courses, except that you don't have to enrol and pay for a 3 year Degree course! Of course you don't get all the surrounding Uni life, but my courses will be much more affordable to those with limited time and finances.

Atelier Classes, Courses and Workshops take place in my light, airy, spacious studio which is very well equipped with an industrial sewing machine, a domestic sewing machine, two overlockers, two dress stands, and an industrial steam press.
See the photos and videos below, and the drop down menu (above) for details of all courses, classes and workshops.'
Here's my biography for more detail!

Classes run all year, and gift vouchers are available....all classes can be one to one, or groups.
A recent testimonial of my teaching:
‘I wanted to say that your teaching methods and knowledge are outstanding and I have learnt so much since starting classes with you. You are patient, forthcoming with information and explanations and you talk with intelligence. I am able to pick up what you are teaching me so quickly and that is down to your personality and understanding of people. I am enjoying every moment of my classes and look forward to wearing my completed tweed dress. This dress means a lot to me, as you know, and it is all the more special because I have been able to have one to one lessons with you and have fun making it. You are fun yet professional, and to my mind you have exactly what it takes to be an excellent teacher. If only they were all like you'
