About Us

Sew Forest of Dean  provides sewing classes and workshops in and around the beautiful Forest of Dean.  I am fortunate to have grown up in an age where the teaching of sewing and craft was still part of the school curriculum and I have therefore been making “stuff” since a very young age.  As an adult, I was looking for ways to develop my skills further and spent hours researching possible courses and workshops.  Sadly, what became clear, was that there was little on offer on a local, part time basis.  Ultimately, I went on to study Textiles at Herefordshire College and have been exploring new ideas and techniques ever since.

All of our classes/workshops have restricted numbers to ensure that high quality, individual tuition is provided for each person attending.  For our beginners courses, maximum numbers are 4 per session and for our more experienced sewers and hand embroidery, maximum numbers of 6 per session.
