Got a perfect pair of pants that's just a little too long? Or maybe there's a non-repairable rip in your favourite dress? Check out this online class for a great way to develop your alteration skills in a relaxing virtual space.

Absorb some great new knowledge from a friendly designer and get hands-on with sustainable stitching in the comfort of your own home. From assessing your garment with a tailor's eye to fitting and unpicking, you'll approach your DIY project with a sense of calm and utilise your new skills to complete your finished piece.

Your teacher will provide guidance and support throughout your textiles class, letting you focus on getting the perfect fit. Looking for things to do at home with your partner? This workshop is a great alternative to the usual at-home date night ideas and will have you both in stitches as you connect over your potential new hobby.

By the end of your workshop, you'll have new creative confidence and some gorgeous altered garments to try on. The next time something doesn't fit, you can pull out your pins and set to work!

Please note:
It's really handy to have another person around to help you with fitting, however, your teacher can help you work around it if not!

My name is Claire and I am the all-rounder behind Couchman Bespoke. I grew up in Harlow, Essex with a creative mother and an entrepreneur father. After gaining a BA(Hons) degree in clothing design and tailoring from Brighton University, I ventured into the world and set up my company to combat the inequalities of the fashion industry I had been subject to.

By creating zero waste through pattern cutting, natural dyeing and sourcing the most sustainable cloth and haberdashery we aim to have very little negative impact on the planet and local people.
Now with 20 years of retail knowledge and 14 years of tailoring experience behind me, I feel confident in my ability to produce clothing that is timeless. Clothing construction is a great passion of mine that sits juxtaposed with a strong interest in the environmental impact of the clothing and textile industry. I aim to be a contributing factor in helping to reduce the environmental impact of the fashion industry whilst educating people about the issue through my workshops and trading fairly within the supply chain.
