Master Classes last a whole day (or half day) and focus on one specific area of dressmaking, one skill level or a particular garment. There are Master Classes for every ability, from getting a solid grounding in the basics for complete beginners, to trying something new for more experienced sewists. All Master Classes are taught by Wendy Ward, owner of MIY Workshop who is a qualified teacher and has been teaching since 2007, spent 7 years working in the fashion industry, writes for national sewing magazines and wrote the bestselling book “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking”.
SUNDAY 25th June 10am – 4pm
MAKE A WRAP SKIRT WITH WENDY WARD
Join me for a day of dressmaking this summer. You will make the easy Granville wrap skirt from my latest book “A Beginner’s Guide to Making Skirts”.
This class is ideal for beginners and there are lots of different ways to make the wrap skirt; with ties or buttons, with pockets and even a reversible version so you can really make it to suit your own style. It’s quick, easy and a gorgeous flattering skirt that’s perfect for summer.
You’ll learn how to sew accurate seams, my favourite method for neat hems, how to sew darts, how to attach a facing or lining and how to make and attach a pocket (if you choose that option!).
By the end of the day you’ll feel confident using a sewing machine and leave with a unique-to-you handmade skirt, ready for wearing all summer.
Some materials will be provided, a full list of materials needed will be sent when you book your place.
- Suitable for absolute beginners.
- Class size limited to just 5 people.
