The workshops are based in a log cabin on the edge of Gower, in South Wales. Helen Rhiannon provides expert tuition at the workshops which cater for up to 4 people in the studio.
Monthly Fun Days are held nearby which are inexpensive ways of getting larger groups together to join in the sewing fun! Helen also designs and makes bespoke Bridal wear, so you are in good hands if you join in the sewing fun!
