MENS WAISTCOAT SEWING WORKSHOP , Saturday 16th March, 11am – 5pm (£75 includes materials)
Following the success of this workshop last year as an event with Offset Warehouse we have invited local tailor and stylist Russell Philip Peak back for a full day’s class this time. We are always keen to encourage more men into sewing, so thought we would organise a dedicated class for you. However ladies you are welcome too! This class is an introduction to tailoring and garment construction and will cover skills such as inserting a ‘welt’ style pocket, adding a lining and ‘bagging out’ , adding button holes neatly to a garment and how to get a professional finish to your garment. Open to all sewing abilities but you do need to have used a sewing machine before.
