Nimble fingers

Today we did our first workshop aimed at younger children at Ocean studios ‘Make table’. Ages varied from 6 up to 13. In 2 hours, children learned different hand stitching techniques, how to sew buttons and managed to make purses, keyrings and bracelets by themselves with our guidance. We all enjoyed ourselves and plan future dates for similar workshops, so watch the space. With Enya, we plan adding other crafts to keep children learning new skills.

We have been very busy when not working this year. We improved our workshop set up and added nice deck with seating. I am still trying to find time to work on cushions but they will be ready this month!

So now, you can enjoy having your little break in the sunshine in the company of bumble bees 🙂

We now have selection of sewing workshop set up until End of September. They include sewing workshop for beginners, skirt making workshop, workshop for teenagers during summer and a workshop for little ones that will take place in Ocean studios. Then, there is amazing sewing retreat in a 5 star accommodation near Looe end of September. View more info and book here.

I am now fully booked for other sewing services for the summer season (including my time away). So I fully concentrate on sewing workshops and 1-2-1 lessons between 1/8-16/8. If you wish to book 1-2-1 lesson, please get in touch via my email Those lessons wont be possible weekends as there is simply no free weekends left. But I can try to accommodate those who can only do after work hours.

Summer holidays sewing workshops


This summer I will be running few workshops aimed at children. Creativity and working together is very good for children psyche.  Children will make new friends, learn how to work together as well as alone.

Sewing will develop their attention to detail and give them self-belief.  Check our calendar for all sewing and craft workshops in Plymouth. One is aimed at ages of 5+ and another one 8+. Adults are always welcome.
