Where fashion careers begin

Creative Studio

Creative Studio

Creative Studio is for anyone who would like to sew, from beginners who are guided by our experienced tutor to the more experienced sewer who would like to sew in an specially designed, light and modern environment with cutting tables, overlockers and Bernina sewing machines.  You may of course bring your own machine and in fact we do recommend this as it assists you to know the capabilities of your own machine.  The classes are small no more than 6 students per session so you are assured of attention when needed.  We operate during school terms.

Our workshops are:

  • Small workshops (no more than 6 in per session)
  • Work at your own pace with our experienced seamstress to assist when required.
  • Our sessions are practical workshops, where you learn quick and easy techniques based on the project you wish to create.
  • Amy made the advanced vintage pattern on the right, with the expert assistance of Kim. The dress is absolutely stunning on but we couldn’t persuade Amy to model it.
  • Others are making more modest projects or learning to sew, it’s up to you where you start.

Depending on your project you will learn new techniques even up to couture standards.

  • Whether it is womens, mens or childrens clothes, using overlockers or trying new stretch fabrics or knits, our friendly seamstresses cover all the basics.
  • How many UFO’s (un finished objects) do you have in your closet? Bring them along and we will help you finish them. We are expert in getting the fit just right.
  • There is always something new to learn and and the cross pollination of ideas and techniques is mind blowing.


Experienced seamstresses will be with you every step of the way
