At the beginning of September we ran a day of short workshops at The Mini Makers Faire at the Corn Exchange, a great event that showcases inventions, creativity and resourcefulness.
Thanks to everyone that attended and expressed an interest in us. It was great to meet you!
Life at the OPEN MARKET is now in full swing and its a great place to have our headquarters. There are loads of other creatives and lots of events taking place. So far there have been vintage and antique fairs and last weekend saw a Brighton Fashion Week event take place.
There is pretty much something different happening most weekends... you can check out whats coming uphere
We are just finishing our first half term of classes and are really looking forward to the next one!

For a celebration with a difference, we host creative party workshops. Whether for a hen party, baby shower or birthday ( adults and children )
There are details on our website of the previous workshops that we have held but we are also happy to create a bespoke party depending on the group and the celebration.
Don't forget... as a Community Interest Company all profits from these parties go back into the business to enable us to achieve our aims of providing affordable, accessible sewing lessons for anyone that want to get involved, regardless of income.
Our well equipped workshop is available for private hire at a very reasonable rate. We can also provide bespoke sewing workshops for groups.
As with all of the above...if you need any more information or want to ask us a question please do get in touch with either of us and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.
