Ever dreamed of making your own Stasia Dress? Well this workshop is just for you, come and join us and learn how to make a Sew Liberated Aida shirt in this 8-hour workshop in the Art Room at Krowji in Redruth, Cornwall.

A knit dress that feels like wearing secret pajamas. Optional pockets. Multiple sleeve and length options. A close-fitting tee perfect for layering. Wearing your Stasia Dress, you will be free to hike, dance, and do all sorts of wonderful activities.

This workshop is for all abilities, so don’t worry if this is your first time sewing, during this 8 hour class you will learn how to sew curves and perfect those straight lines. No prior experience is necessary.

Teaching will be at Krowji, Redruth, Cornwall which provides an ideal relaxed, creative, and comfortable learning environment. There is ample parking in the surrounding area. It's a really fun day of sewing with some like-minded sewing enthusiasts.

Included in the price is a lunch from the Melting Pot Cafe and drinks to keep you going through the day of creativity.

All tools, equipment and sewing machines are provided to create a convenient workshop with no preparation or stress required.

Simple and easy to follow instructions will help you to improve and develop your skills with an experienced tutor to allow you to learn at your own pace.

Small groups allow for lots of support during the session and therefore you will leave with a high standard finished product, and if you have to leave early or don't quite finish, don't worry you can come back to any course free of charge to complete your garment.
