Caroline Akselson

My name is Caroline and I am a Swedish Londoner. I am a freelance costume maker for the West End and teach sewing to costume students at Wimbledon College of Art. I hold a degree in costume making and have short courses in Fashion and Pattern Cutting. I have studied and lived all over the world and make London my home. I would like to teach you skills that will give you the power to make do and mend. We can all connect over making stuff with our hands, whatever our age, job, gender, language or cultural background. 

Here is what a first-time workshopper said about our Basic Sewing Workshop:

"Having literally not used needle and thread since the early 2000s, this workshop was a great way to get back in touch with sewing! The instructor is very experienced, highly professional and incredibly patient. She makes sure everybody can learn at the speed they are comfortable with. In just two hours, I have mastered some basic stitches, and, maybe more importantly, learned how and when to apply them. I now know how to fix any undone hems and can also assist you with reattaching buttons!"
