The Sewing Workshop rooms provide technical support and expertise to all students who wish to make garments, work with soft materials or create embellishment. A large number of industrial and domestic machines cover a wide range of sewing requirements from stitching thick leather, making a T-shirt or creating embroidery.


The workshop facilities and our team of experienced technical staff are on hand 5 days a week during normal office hours, We regularly teach formal course specific workshops in the areas, however one to one advice and help is also available for individual project requirements, A basic health & safety induction will be given before students are able to access the area independently. Turning up on spec, you may find we are busy, so pop in and check availability first. Making can be a time consuming process so it is a good idea not to leave important things to the last minute!


We sell basic materials in situ such as pattern card, calico and interfacing. A fabric database provides contact details and samples of useful fabric companies.
