What will they learn?
They will learn everything from how to take measurments, how to read and alter a pattern, how to make their own skirt, fashion accessories and up-cycle/mend their own clothes including zips and buttons.
The sewing will mostly be done on a sewing machine. They can bring their own or I have machines available
What do they bring?
All materials are provided at the Camps they just need a bottle of water/juice and a packed lunch. If they have clothes they want to up cycle bring them along too.
What will they take home?
They will take home their very own handmade skirt (or top if they have attended previously) and accessories. Not only that but bucket loads of ideas, tips and techniques.
Workshops at Michelle’s charming country cottage have often been described as “an idyllic retreat” and compared to “a day at the spa”. They are a delightful way to spend a few hours in a truly inspirational setting in rural Ireland. You will receive a warm welcome on arrival and expert tuition but at the same time actively encouraged to explore your own creativity. It’s hard not to feel creative in Michelle’s cottage where you are surrounded by her upcycled pieces of furniture and shelves filled with all sorts of sewing notions, spools of thread and crafty bits and pieces. Not only that but Michelle’s enthusiasm for all things crafty is highly infectious!
