The Workshop

The Workshop is a purpose built space with a large room that can be used for sewing. It is such a fantastic, creative space that you'll enjoy whilst at the retreats. 

Each person has their own large sewing table made of sturdy wood. The space has an additional room that is set up with a large cutting table with cutting mats, irons & ironing boards and overlocking stations.

With haberdashery and fabric for sale, you'll have everything you need to create your Avid Seamstress garment. The workshop has it's own fully equipped kitchen that is filled with drinks options, fruit and treats through the day. The space is surrounded by the Dorset countryside and you'll be able to enjoy the fresh air or go for a swim/sauna during the day. 

Our tutors will take you through each step of creating your garment. This retreat is for all levels so if it's your first garment, you'll be surrounded by a warm community and you'll pick up so many tips along the way. We have attendees making their first trousers, putting in their first concealed zips, making fully lined blazers and more!
