Чем вы займетесь

Bring along an item of clothing that doesn't fit well, is never worn or is broken in someway. We all have such items that were once loved or that were brought but never worn, this is the sustainable answer to such an issue.
In this session you will pair up and fit your partners garment, with my advice and guidance along the way, then swap over and vise-versa. Garments can also be turned into something new and in your pair you will discuss the best product to make, again with my advice and guidance. Once everyone is fitted, consulted and happy with the outcome sewing can commence. You will unpick where necessary, pin, cut and sewing whilst getting to know your fellow participants over a tea.
At the end of this session you will have an item that you can get far more use out of whether that is a fitting garment, turn an old garment into a bag/ dress into a top or skirt/ pillow/ patchwork blanket, or fix a hole.

This was a great experience -- I arrived with a dress that just didn't fit right; Claire helped me figure out what to change about it so that it truly fits and I can be glad to wear it. She taught me how to do the changes, but I did the sewing, and still have some finishing work to do on my own machine when I get back home again. This was as expected -- in just 3 hours, with seams to unpick and sleeves to set in again, I didn't think it would be completely finished. But Claire's expertise resulted in a well-fitting garment. She has worked in the alterations business for some time, sharing some tips and tricks for getting things to fit well. The studio is a lovely place to work; because I was there on a Sunday it was nice and quiet. If you understand the basics about sewing, this is a fun way to spend several hours on a Sunday in London. I brought along a brown bag lunch which worked great. There's a refrigerator and microwave there, Claire offered me tea as well. I'd gladly do this experience again, with another garment that needs fitting expertise and alteration.

My wife has been sewing for over 30 years and has watched numerous alteration videos on streaming media, but could never get her patterns to be 100% to her contours. That all changed with Claire. They were able to go over the process, make a few tweaks based on Claires vast knowledge and expertise. Now my wife has a repeatable technique she is able to apply to all of her patterns back at home. My wife will take this experience again.

This is really an amazing opportunity - very on trend and useful. Claire has a great set up at her studio and is immensely knowledgeable. The opportunity to bring in a piece of unused clothing and take advantage of Claire’s tools and understanding of clothing construction and tailoring is very cool. If there are others in the experience, you get to see how their pieces are transformed and learn from that. I really can’t recommend it enough - it is a socially responsible learning situation that you can expand on, but even if you don’t, the foundation of how to repurpose unused fabric items is a great opportunity. Highly recommended.

An AMAZING TIME!! Claire is an artist and a wonderful creative woman. I am a fashion stylist and I needed to learn something about how to alterate clothing. We made the waist of my pants smaller and we decorated this denim with patches and buttons. Now it’s my favorite item. She explained me patiently everything she was doing, and she gave me tips about different ways to do the same thing. The studio was an awesome space and I spent a really great afternoon! Thank you Claire!!

I’ve just had a fabulous afternoon altering a jacket that wasn’t quite right. Claire and I discussed the shape of the jacket and what needed adjusting. Claire then showed me how to make adjustments to the sleeve length and jacket length in a professional way. I now have a jacket that fits perfectly as well as the knowledge of how to alter a jacket in the future myself. Thanks Claire.
