Additionally, a range of sewing and textile classes are run in Norfolk by other organisations:

  • Makeplace Norwich offers a range of sewing classes at both beginner and intermediate levels. They also offer some children’s classes.
  • Norfolk Makers Festival is a free, annual event which takes place at The Forum, Norwich and which brings together tens of thousands of people in a celebration of creativity and making heritage. The festival filled with inspirational exhibitions, demonstrations, hands-on activities, conversation, talks and workshops, attracting large numbers of visitors and creating a vibrant, collaborative festival atmosphere.
  • We Wear The Trousers is a not-for-profit organisation aimed at empowering people to keep our collective fashion and clothing resources in active use for longer. Keeping our clothes in use for longer by mending, tending, swapping, sharing, styling, remaking or refashioning offers us ways to engage with FASHION that aren’t just buying new stuff. Which isn’t just great for our bank balance, it’s great for the planet!
  • Sew Creative is based in Norwich and offers a range of sewing classes at both beginner and intermediate levels. These include pattern making, copying your clothes, get to know your overlocker and or sewing machine, sewing group, quilting and patchwork.

Please note that these organisations are in no way associated with the Norfolk Waste partnership, or any of the councils that form part of it, and we accept no responsibility for any part of their courses or any information contained within their associated websites.
