Welcome to the home of sewing and craft workshops

Based in Hassocks in Sussex we have a selection of workshops and classes to suit from sewing and knitting to floristry and paper craft. We offer beginner and intermediate sessions including individual private lessons. We  also run a wide range of sewing and craft events or parties for both adults and children. You can be sure there'll be something here to suit you.

A professional soft furnishings and curtain making service helps you create the home you love.

 

OPEN DAY SATURDAY 12TH OCTOBER 10:30AM TO 3:30PM

Come and join us for an open day in memory of our treasured tutor, the lovely Jackie Karley. We will be raising money for St Peter & St James Hospice.

Between 10:30am and 3:30pm we will be helping everyone make reusable pocket shoppers using lovely Liberty of London fabrics. We will be running on a ticket system, deli counter style, to ensure that everyone gets a turn in order. Arrive, collect your ticket and wait for your number to grab your slot. Minimum donation to take part will be £5.

Kits will be available to purchase for all those that can't take part on the day.

(Children aged 10 years and over are welcome to take part but an adult must stay with them. Children can not be left).

HOORAY I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR A  WORKSHOP LIKE THIS FOR YEARS.

I love sewing but finishing garments can be difficult with only one pair of hands. I also like to experiment, altering garments and patterns, but without someone knowledgeable to bounce ideas around with it's daunting. Procrastination became my friend.
Now I have found a light and airy, well equipped space with friendly people to help and like minded participants to natter with. The Sew Friendly workshops are great. You can even use a garden centre trolley to get your sewing machine to the workshop from your car, but if you prefer Made & Making have machines available on site.

CHILDRENS WORKSHOP

Another great workshop at Made and Making. My daughter always looks forward to the holiday sessions and was thrilled with the bag that she made. Lovely venue and classes are always well organised. The tutors manage to give exactly the right level of support for the children - supporting and guiding as much as needed, but still allowing them the satisfaction of making it themselves

FRIENDLY AND ENJOYABLE ESCAPISM

I have attended various sessions at Made and Making and each time I feel I do not want the session to end. All the tutors are so lovely, patient and extremely knowledgeable and most importantly do not make you feel inadequate.

It is my escapism and therapy and I look forward to each session.
