I am a working costume maker and assistant, I'm studying Costume Interpretation and have several years experience in the theatre making costumes for theatre companies and have assisted on several West End shows.
I also love fashion and have my own clothing line. I have many years experience in fashion and have been creating garments for 5 years and sewing for twice that! I really enjoy teaching, and have experience teaching one to one. I aim to make my lessons exciting, inspiring but also highly productive!
I can teach you how to make mad costumes, historical costumes, create yourself a whole new wardrobe of amazing clothes, make garments from patterns or from scratch, corset making, knitting both hand and machine and have several machines available for use. I don't mind your level of experience, complete beginners welcome.
Its so enjoyable and exciting walking down the street in your own creations, knowing that you've designed and made them, no one else will be wearing them and they're such good value for money. I am offering to teach you skills for life. Knowing how to fix, alter or customise current clothes adds longevity to even the scariest of wardrobes, and knowing how to make your own things is so much more satisfying than buying your clothes from a shop and having to pick from the same pool as everyone else.
Feel free to contact me to have a chat about the kind of things you want to learn.
