This one day workshop will talk you through the processes involved in making your changing robe from cutting to stitching and decorating. You will learn a few new techniques along with applique and French Seaming.

The face to face workshop is hosted in the wonderful surroundings of the newly refurbished Hall for Cornwall, the cultural hub of Cornwall in the heart of Truro with a fabulous cafe and bar.
The online workshop will be beamed from my full equipped Cornish garden studio, with opportunities to chat and sew as well as learn - a fun sociable sew with the added benefit of a cosy robie at the end of it!!
Depending on your skill level, You may not get these totally finished during the day - but you will be equipped with everything you need to know to be able to do so... and this prices also includes follow up support through a Facebook group for a couple of weeks if you get stuck once the class is over.
The face to face class size will be kept small in order to be able to ensure everyone has enough support on the day itself. Online has a few more spaces as there will be two of us manning the workshop and running the tech.
There will also be a closed Facebook group to help you prepare in advance and for post workshop support for up to 2 weeks.
