The Carlisle Sewing Retreat - 17th June 2019
The Carlisle Sewing Retreat
17th - 21st June 2019
This Retreat is all about Couture.
Couture sewing takes time and patience. Much of the construction is done by hand often because the fabrics are tricky and there could be complicated design details. Since spending time with Claire Shaeffer, who is an internationally respected author, lecuturer and columnist and has a collection of over 2000 couture garments many of which are Chanel, I have been inspired to do more couture sewing and share some of these skills.
On this Retreat we will practice Couture techniques in the beautiful peaceful atmosphere of Dalston Hall Hotel.
I will be creating a lovely sewing space at the Hotel and teaching Sewing Techniques perfect for creating a Chanel Style Cardigan Jacket, Couture Skirt or Dress
The price will include 4 nights accommodation in this 4 star Hotel, breakfast, lunch and a three course dinner each day.
Over the three days we will
- discuss projects, make a toille and plan your couture garment
- pay a visit to Linton Tweeds the home of fabric produced and suppled to Couture houses such as Chanel, Yves St Laurent and Dior. We are excitied that Mrs Walker from Linton Tweeds will be giving us a talk about the company's fascinating history.
