“Ivana's teaching techniques, support and constant motivation encouraged me to take a hobby into a lifestyle!
I'm now more organised, confident, better at planning a project and I've definitively become better at time managing.”
“Ivana is an inspirational and creative art teacher. I had the pleasure to be part of her classes. She is knowledgeable, patient and focused on detail. I highly recommend her classes!”
“Ivana is a fabulous teacher: she is patient, she provides clear instructions and she goes the extra mile to help her students. She has a welcoming, friendly personality that helps create a pleasant working atmosphere. No project is impossible under her guidance, no matter your skills. I'd definitely recommend to reach out to her: it will be instructional and fun!”
“Ivana is a skillful, fun and patient teacher. She has taken me from being a complete beginner to having the confidence to embark on my own sewing projects and being able to mend and repair clothes, I am so grateful to her and cannot recommend her highly enough!”
Lessons are built for all human beings age 10+
Lesson plans are written prior to the booking, but they are tailored to your creating needs after a “So & Sew” virtual chat, in spirit of the individual approach.
If you would like to enrol a younger child, please contact us and we can discuss this further.
Every sewing course begins with safety rules, where we explain how to work with tools and machines in the safest way.
Our sewing machines have a safety feature, that they won’t sew if the presser foot is up and speed of sewing can be adjusted to the experience level of the student.
Also we have a finger guard installed on the machine for kids, that means that the finger can’t get close to the sewing machine needle.
Read more in our blog post about sewing safety rules.
Closed-in shoes must be worn at all times, including the warmer months, in case that you drop scissors or other tools on your feet. We recommend wearing older clothes while working with paint, to avoid getting your nice clothes ruined.
Long hair must be tied back or covered.
All materials and tools needed are included, even a sewing machine.
If you would like to practice on your sewing machine and use your own materials, you are more than welcome.
Classes are conducted privately in your home or in our studio.
