Oxford Alterations Embark On Bespoke Makers Experiences
Robbie Haddock, Oxford Alterations Director and veteran of the fashion industry is celebrating traditional sewing skills in collaboration with Oxford based pattern cutter Cristine Eady to offer an engaging and approachable itinerary of garment making workshops suitable for everyone from absolute beginners to experienced makers.
Chatting to Robbie about the workshop, he commented;
I’m excited about teaching people traditional skills in a contemporary way and opening up our studio to a wider audience!
The first full-day workshop in the series will carefully guide six makers through the process of crafting their own vest-top, with a curated range of natural fabrics to chose from. The first Saturday of each month will be dedicated to a new wardrobe staple, from tweed trousers to mens underwear.
Oxford Alterations is part of Makespace Oxford, a collaborative work space in Jericho where their well appointed studio sits amongst the bustle and throng of other like minded artists, organisations and charities with a social focus.
This series of maker’s workshops offer attendees a unique opportunity to learn traditional skills in contemporary surroundings under the expert guidance of industry professionals. Book a place on an upcoming workshop on their website www.oxfordalterations.co.uk.
