Oxford Alterations Embark On Bespoke Makers Experiences

 In Inspiration

Oxford Alterations, a Jericho-based contemporary atelier and all round sewing hub, are presenting their first Maker’s Workshop this Saturday 2nd February at their canal-side studio with the aim of introducing budding makers to bespoke garment making.

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.
