On-site and Online

Join us here or online for a live workshop!


During summer and autumn 2021, we'll be running a series of live online and on-site workshops, open to everyone.  We'll focus on some key sewing and tailoring skills, and the workshops will be delivered by our team of professionals.

The links below include physical, in-person workshops conducted at our lovely workshop in Bromsgrove.

I really enjoyed the session and learnt so much! Can’t believe I did a dart and what a difference a little thing like that makes to a garment! (Or even a random bit of material). Mo was great. The whole atmosphere was lovely.

I have been sewing for over 40 years. Having now attended both sewing classes and a couple of workshops at IDC I have discovered that I learn something new every time I am there. So, you can teach an old dog new tricks, make lovely wearable garments and have a good laugh all at the same time! Brilliant!😊 You can also buy most of your sewing requirements from the shop with great support from Laura 😊Very enjoyable smocking workshops, Emma. 😊
