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 new Japanese Apron workshops? I will teach you how to construct your own contemporary cross-back apron in the finest Irish linen, using an ingenious Japanese pattern cutting method.

All materials and use of a sewing machine provided.

 

Don't fancy machining it? Try one of my relaxed hand sewing workshop where you can create anything from vintage style Christmas Decorations to lavender scented Sleepy Owls.
