Upcoming Dressmaking Retreats...

Thurs 18th – Fri 19th April 2024
The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK

No set projects

These weekends are all about whatever you want to make. We won’t be telling you what to do. There’s a relaxed and informal feel, and no busy timetable to follow.

You don’t need to be an expert seamstress

Our dressmaking retreats are designed for people who can work independently. So long as you know the basics, perhaps having attended a beginner’s course, you’ll get loads from it. And our team of tutors will be there to help with the fiddly bits.

Pretend you’re on the Sewing Bee!

A room full of sewers pushing their dressmaking skills to new levels and forming friendships along the way. Sound familiar? But you’ll be glad to know our retreats are definitely not a race against the clock. Instead, they’re all about slowing down and enjoying the process.
