Upcoming One Day Workshops

There are a number of one day workshops being held this term at Leith Academy. The first one is ‘Floral Fabric Accessories’ on this Saturday 5th October from 10am-3pm. In this workshop you will make at least five different floral accessories using a variety of materials. The class is fun and inspiring, and no prior sewing experience is required. £5 is to be paid to the tutor for all materials etc. provided on the day.

The other workshops are ‘Clasp Purses’ on Saturday 19th October, and ‘Cushion Covers and Zipped Purses’ on Sunday 20th October. No sewing experience is necessary for any of the workshops, although a basic level is helpful for these two workshops as we will be using the sewing machines.Each workshop costs £17.50 for the day. To book a place on any of the above workshops call Leith Academy on 0131 553 2810.

Marion Leaves Scotland

Last week my very helpful and lovely student assistant Marion completed her 8 weeks work experience at my studio and returned to France. She’ll now never know that temperatures north of Calais can reach over 20 centigrade!
On her final day we ate homemade chocolate cake and I gave her a pink Bow Clutch for all her hard work. She has been a great help to me over the past two months, and I will miss her!
