Body Types and Colours determines each students’ different body type and colours to ensure they purchase or make garments which suit their individual needs.  This is a great workshop to encourage self esteem and sustainable consumerism.

All workshops focus on sustainable products and processes, to gear the future generations of the Australian Fashion Industry.  Each workshop runs for minimum 45 minutes and maximum 3 hours with worksheets and extra information provided throughout the course.  It is a great way for schools to add something a bit different to their Fashion and Textiles curriculum, to inspire and encourage students to pursue a career in fashion or simply introduce them to sustainable living and choices.


Custom Workshops are designed to your skill level.  You may need a refresher as you have purchased a new machine or you may need some one-on-one tuition as you are struggling at school, Uni or Tafe.  These workshops are designed for you and by you, allowing you to learn only the aspects you are needing and wanting to learn.

Other custom workshops include birthday parties, baby showers and kitchen tea.  Please call to enquire as these are custom designed around your needs.
