Whether you're a beginner or an improver, this private class in Canning Town will ignite your passion for textile art and show you how to sew.

You'll get a one-on-one experience with a patient and supportive teacher Claire who is ready to demonstrate and guide you through some sewing techniques. You'll be provided with sewing tools, a few types of fabrics, and sewing machine, so all you need to worry about is learning some fun new skills and being creative.

This sewing class is completely designed around what you want to learn about the sewing machine and the abilities you already have. Prepare a few ideas of what you'd like to achieve, and your teacher will help you make all your sewing dreams come true! You will be asked at the checkout to input a few ideas of what to learn. Don't worry if you change your mind, this just gives your teacher time to prepare.

Once this class is over, you will take home everything you make to inspire you to pick up some more simple sewing projects at home. I will also take some pictures and forward them to you afterwards.

If you know someone who has always wanted to sew, this class makes a great gift experience. It's a fun thing to do in London that will get you out of the hustle and bustle and into a fun DIY craft.

You are welcome to bring your own machine.

My name is Claire and I am The Ethical Tailor. I am the founder of Moxie Craft and Couchman Bespoke an ethical tailors based in Canning Town. 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.
