Available Options:
Workshop Date:

Join us for a fun morning of sewing and learn how to hand smock, or continue where you left off last time you smocked with Maria.  Smocking is an embroidery technique that uses small stitches to gather up the fabric.  In the olden days, as well as being decorative, it also served a practical purpose - as the gathered fabric is able to stretch it is perfect for necklines or cuffs.  These days you will usually find hand smocking on children's dresses, but it also looks great on women's clothes too.


About your Teacher:

As well as being an incredible designer, pattern cutter and seamstress Maria Pulley is also an excellent teacher, who's passion for sewing is infectious. She totally loves the whole process of creating a garment, from the concept through to the craft of making it.

Class Size:

Maximum class size of 6.

Skills:

This course is for beginners to hand smocking.

Materials:

You will need to provide a little fabric to experiment with.  Something with a geometric print, like small spots, stripes or checks would be ideal as you can use the print as a guide.

Course Duration:

1 morning.

Venue:

Workshops are held in our colourful and cosy studio, above the shop. There is lots of space to spread out and a separate chill out area to have a break. The shop is located in central Chichester, about a 10 minute walk from the train and bus station. The closest car park is The Cattle Market.
