If you ever struggle to find the perfect fit with your clothes, why not learn how to tailor them yourself. Whether it's trousers that are too long or you want to repurpose old clothes into stylish new attire, this sewing class is a great place to learn.

Guided by a talented and friendly designer, you will get hands-on experience with the needle and thread to pick up sustainable sewing techniques. From learning how to assess your garment with a tailor's eye, to fitting to your proportions and unpicking retailers stitches, you'll be picking up many useful tips and tricks.

This sewing workshop is one-on-one, so you get complete attention from your teacher as you work on your DIY project and learn new skills. You will be working in a calm and enriching environment in East London.

There is plenty of room for questions but we do recommend you have some sewing knowledge before joining this class. It's a must-do in London for all the sewing enthusiasts out there who want to hone their skills.

By the end of this workshop, you will have already fixed one garment you bought with you, and have all the knowledge you need to keep fixing more.

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 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.
