Introducing Virtual Workshops, a remote learning series for beginners and experienced makers alike.

Taught by The School of Making instructor Sunne Meyer, each two-hour workshop focuses on the physics of hand-sewing, embroidery, and construction.

Once enrolled, guests receive workshop information and a form to choose a DIY Kit and/or materials for the class. As the date of the class approaches, guests will be sent a Zoom link to join us virtually. Price includes materials in curated colorways, class materials, and instruction.

    Can you let me know if the Zoom recording will be available after the workshop? I live in Australia and am not sure if the time difference will work.
    Many thanks
