Do or Die...

Come along to a creative one-day shoe makeover workshop and learn how to transform a pair of plain old shoes into something truly stunning and totally unique! On these fun one-day courses, I will guide you step by step through the process of pattern making, covering and embellishing your shoes with a choice of eye-catching fabrics and trims. At the end of the day you will walk away in your very own fabulous customised footwear!

Please bring along a pair of plain patent/smooth shoes to cover (heels or ballet flats are ideal) and an apron. All other materials and equipment are provided.

A shoe makeover workshop makes a fantastic hen-do activity, please get in touch if you would like to arrange one!

 

Or if sewing is your bag, why not come along to one of my sewing workshops? They are suitable for anyone from beginner to expert - and with Japanese designs, wardrobe staples and home accessories to choose from, there's always something for everyone.

 

Don't fancy machining it? Try one of my relaxed arm knitting workshops and create your own gorgeous chunky throw using giant yarn and your arms for needles!
