Workshops

We love to bring people together to learn new skills or to develop existing ones. Over the past year we have held workshops in stained glass, corset making, sewing techniques, knitting, felt making and more. To reserve a place on a workshop please email us at mail@thesmithystudios.co.uk.

Create a Keepsake Memory Cushion

Friday 5th July, 10.30am – 12.30pm, £20

Tuesday 23 July, 7pm – 9pm, £20

Bring along fabric scraps from favourite dresses, a drawing by your child, a signature from a loved one, buttons, trimmings and more. In this class Bernie will support you in planning and creating a unique cushion front full of memories. The cushion in the picture has a stitched tracing of her grand daughters name and uses a picture drawn by her granddaughter as the inspiration for the appliqué girl.

This is a great opportunity to create a family heirloom.

Beginners Sewing Class

Saturday July 13, 10.30am – 4.30pm

In this class you will make an ‘A’ line Skirt &  learn how to use a pattern and to make simple adjustments to ensure a good fit. You will then seam, insert a zip and hem your skirt.

You will need to bring fabric (a light cotton) and co-ordinating concealed (invisible) zip and thread. Advice on these is given before the class.

This skirt was made by an absolute beginner in our last class…
