Craig was a brilliant teacher and ran a great class. In the beginning, I was a bit nervous about how complex my garment was but Craig soon made me feel at ease. I really enjoyed learning the different techniques of creating a pattern from a ready-made garment. Craig also gave me lots of advice on how to sew up my garment. I would definitely recommend this class!

Really enjoyed the session cloning 2items of clothing. It gave me a good insight into what’s required to recreate something from my wardrobe. Small group and the tutor was really attentive and professional.

This was a brilliant session. I chose to clone a pair of trousers and learnt so much about the process involved in ensuring every aspect of the pattern required is covered. Thank you and highly recommend this to start cutting your own patterns!

I loved this workshop, Craig was super helpful and I left with a complete pattern for my favourite dress - ready to start the pattern-cutting and sewing process. I would definitely recommend for anyone who is a beginner sewer wanting to learn more about pattern-making.

I found this course really helpful. I learned how I can clone any garment. By following simple steps I managed to create 3 patterns for 3 different tops I love. Now I'm ready to sew. Thank you

I was more than 15minutes so I couldn't attend the class. I know it's my responsibility to be on time, but sometimes life just brings some events that make you late: my train was not coming, my phone was stolen a few days ago so I couldn't use the GPS to find the entrance (and GOD it's hidden). When the teacher opened the door, he talked to me with no consideration at all: "you will make the class late, I can't afford to have you in there" or "you are making me loose my time here, I should be with my class". It happens to be late sometimes, but as a teacher from a workshop it doesn't cost you nothing to be nice. Also, I thought I could take the class another week because I was not allowed this time. The guy just said no with his head and closed the door to my nose. It's not that I don't recommend the class for its content, I just don't recommend for the attitude of the teacher. There are ways of talking...

I learnt more in three hours than I have on all the sewing courses I’ve attended in my life combined (including all episodes of the sewing bee I’ve religiously watched and utube tutorials) Craig is incredibly patient and generous with sharing his masses of sewing skills. Brill course Thank you!

I took both my teenage daughters with me to the Fashion Box workshop- this was the second workshop we have been to there- again it was brilliant. Although I sew myself quite regularly the Fashion Box enables me to expand my skills & refine my techniques. My girls love learning from Craig & his team & find them very easy to talk to & ask questions of, which means I can learn & work alongside them with my own garment/project! The studio is light & bright with small, friendly class sizes. The only improvement would be onsite parking- but the site is easily accessible by train & a short walk!
