In response to popular demand, we are introducing dressmaking workshops under the supervision of our own in-house expert dressmaker, Clare Auty. The first of these will be spread over two days, the 7th May and 11th June, when we will make a lined skirt with a zip and waistband, and the option of pockets which can be embellished.
Clare making a rose-coloured altar frontal
There is no need to bring a pattern; Clare will bring a skirt block which can be adapted to your size and your preferred shape. If you prefer, you can bring your own pattern, in which case you will need to check with Clare that it is suitable for the course.
Inserting a zip
The cost of the course is £40 per day - £20 for children. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided, and you will need to bring a packed lunch. The venue is the church hall of St Anthony of Padua, Headington, and the sessions will run from 10am till 4pm.
