Business owner teaching pattern making, sewing and construction of garments, shoes and bags.

Methodology

I believe in having a relaxed and fun environment. I am a very visual person personally so i tend to explain, show and them guide you through each step. With my varied and collective background there isn't any creative possibility we cant explore together.

Background

i Studied Fashion and textile construction/printing in London 20 years ago, Bag making and Shoe repairs in Melbourne 10 years ago. I have been doing freelance and leather consignment pieces since then as well as running a successful alterations business.
