The Button Bicycle School of Sewing is a friendly and relaxed weekly sewing class. Students bring along their own projects to complete under the expert guidance of a qualified textiles teacher.
Students will be offered advice in how to select a pattern, fabric and notions as well as in construction and finishing techniques.
Qualified teacher Lottie has been sewing for as long as she can remember, she completed a textiles degree before training as a textiles teacher and working as a textiles designer and seamstress. Students will be able to draw on her 20+ years of experience learning tips and tricks to completing a high quality finish for both furnishing and dressmaking projects.
Lottie's main aim of the School of Sewing is to pass on her enjoyment and love of sewing. The classes therefore aim to be above all relaxed and enjoyable. Refreshments including tea, coffee and biscuits are served but students are welcome to bring along other drinks, for example a sneaky glass of wine (as long as it is drunk responsibly!)
