Course Leader:

Anna Wesemann has been sewing for over 40 years, starting as a child making dolls' clothes. She was lucky enough to learn from grandmothers, both of whom  were  professional seamstresses.

Like many people, that have attended our workshops, she didn't have a very positive experience with sewing at school and therefore doesn't have any sewing qualifications.

Instead she pursued her passion for sewing through trial and error, experimentation and dedication for the craft of dressmaking.

Over the years she has attended a range sewing courses on dressmaking, bag making and soft furnishings. By profession she is a teacher and is pleased to combine her years of experience in schools to teach adults the art of dressmaking.

Duration: 6 hours - Please note we try to calculate how long a workshop will be but these times are only a guide and your workshop may run over.
