Workshop & Course Testimonials

My daughter visited Centre Front Studio for a morning with Dan. She learnt lots of new tips and had a really great time.


If your a beginner, intermediate or experienced Sewist this is the place to learn more. Its such a Happy place to come to. Lots of advice and help and lots of cups of tea


Thoroughly enjoyed the 10 week beginners course. Rory and Dan know their stuff and are great teachers. Thank you, We will be back for more.


I have been looking for a very long time for the kind of tuition and courses that Rory and Danielle provide at Centre Front Studio They are fantastic tutors – very skilled, patient and knowledgable. They are also generous with their time and tips. Although i have been sewing on and off for years i am completely self taught and knew i needed to learn proper techniques. I started with the Pattern Hack workshop and decided to do Beginners part 1 course. I plan to continue with courses and workshops for as long as possible.
