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.
