Japanese Kimono Silk Nightwear Line 'Twilight'

‘Twilight’ Silk Nightwear Line – Japanese Kimono

More than ever, people want to get creative and make things that show off their talents at the same time producing unique fashions and gifts. There was a time where we learned the skills of sewing as children through watching our mother’s and grandmother’s busily making new dresses for the girls and waistcoats for the boys, or knitting each child a sweater for the winter months. This is not the case anymore, as careers and the need to work to bring in the money has forced the culture to change.

For some years now, I have been working with individuals to help them gain the skills to help them be creative and proud of their efforts. I notice that many have some experience but that it was so long ago, they need a refresher course or they want to take their skills to the next level.

      Hi Alice,

      Greatest apologies for this very late reply. I am currently working at Edinburgh College of Art and unable to run courses at this time.

      I hope you have found another class that you can attend!

      Thank you for being in touch.

      Best Wishes
