In the past few years I have given beginner sewing classes, as well as upcycling workshops. These classes/workshops are based in Galway. These classes will recommence in 2019.

All upcoming workshops and classes will be posted on this blog, or Facebook page.


Workshops are 2 hours (or more) and themed to simple sews and upcycling.


‘Sewing Fundamentals’ (basic sewing)  – The focus of these classes is to learn  basic sewing techniques by making sewing samples of each technique, and after the 4 classes, you will have the basic foundations to sewing a simple bodice and skirt!
