Sew a Summer Shift Dress

Tempted by fabulous summer fabrics or not been able to find that go to summer dress? Join us for a fun day learning to make your own gorgeous shift dress. Choose from a variety of simple styles and make a lovely one off dress that fits you and have the confidence and skill to run up other items at home.
Some basic experience of using a sewing machine is necessary. If your not sure, just drop me a line!
Kate Reid trained at Central School of Art in London in textile design, which led to work as a freelance knitwear designer and textile specialist in a Lancashire museum. She now runs her own successful costume hire company, designing and making bespoke costumes for both theatre productions and film. Kate is an inspiring teacher; she has loads of experience and has run needle felt workshops for a range of ages.
This workshop costs £70 and includes a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake with refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake. You need to bring your own fabric, a zip and matching spool of thread.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn in the beautiful Kentmere Valley at Browfoot Farm, Nr. Staveley, LA8 9JQ
The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley.
For more information, look at our website: or phone George Grange on 01539 821210
Staying over? Why not stay on the farm, we have luxury ensuite camping pods on site, dependant on availability –
