Workshop FAQs

Where will the workshop be? Threadworks, 4th Floor, 18-20 Saint John Street, EC1M 4AY, London. 5 minutes walk from Farringdon and Barbican underground stations.

Is there parking? Yes, there is on-street parking but it is very expensive on a Saturday morning (free all day on Sunday). I would recommend coming by bike or public transport if possible.

Do I need to bring anything to the workshops? Just yourselves! I'll provide everything you need for the making. However, you may wish to bring your lunch which you can eat during the lunch break in the studio. Otherwise there are lots of great cafes in the local area to pop out to.

How do you work out the sizing or the garments?  I use standard Women's UK Sizing for my patterns. 

Can I alter the pattern? Yes that is the joy of making your own clothes. If you want to make a sleeve longer or a leg more tapered I will be on hand to show you how to do that.

Do I get to keep the pattern? Yes you will take home a copy of the pattern so that you can make as many versions of the garment as you like, now that you have the skills!

Are your workshops open to men, people identifying as gender non-binary or cisgender? Yes. The majority of people who come on my courses are women but everyone is welcome. If are not a female and you would like to join us, please go ahead and book and then drop me an email to say you have done so. I will then ask for a few body measurements from you so that I can adapt the relevant pattern. It would be very helpful if you give me at least one weeks notice before the workshop.

Do you have disabled access? I'm afraid the studio is on the 4th floor of a very old factory building and at present the landlord has no intention of building a lift. However as my business grows it is my priority to have a space which is fully accessible.

If I book and then I can't make it can I have a refund? I'm afraid places are non-refundable once booked. However you could try selling the place on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #threadworksworkshops
