My classes are relaxed, friendly and encouraging. My aim is to boost your stitch confidence, give you a gentle space to create and relax while filling your lesson with laughter and badass stitching skills.
I am a textile artist with 18 years sewing experience and have been teaching for 6 years.
I run Sew Swansea an independent sewing workshop in the heart of the city center offering a huge range of textile based classes.
I can highly recommend Tasha. Her personable nature and expert knowledge make all of her classes enjoyable and informative and her small class sizes ensure that learning styles and abilities can be catered to. I regularly go to the stitch social and meet like minded folks and have taken the hand spinning class. Really looking forward to the other classes I have booked later in the year
Tasha is a friendly, patient and knowledgeable tutor. I have completed a number of her classes (beginner's crochet, beginner's sewing, reusable sanitary pads, Christmas stocking, free-motion embroidery), which she has always delivered with lots of encouragement and gentle positivity. I have gone on to confidently use the skills Tasha has taught me to make other textiles projects on my own.
I also regularly attend her Stitch Social group, which is always fun yet relaxing (with coffees, teas, hot chocolate and edible treat), and I have attended some of the guest tutor classes that Tasha offers.
Tasha's classes are more-often-than-not available during evenings and weekends, which makes them ideal for anyone looking to attend sewing classes outside of normal working hours. Tasha also set limits to how many attend each class, to make sure she can give everyone the right amount of time and attention they need to learn the skills and complete the class.
I also have to note that I have anxiety, which can be debilitating at times. Tasha has been aware of my condition from day one, and has only ever been accepting and understanding about it. It is not easy for me to feel relaxed around people, but Tasha works hard to provide a relaxed-yet-encouraging environment for all her classes and socials. I have never felt stressed or out of my depths in these sessions: I have only ever felt calm and supported.
I really cannot recommend Tasha enough if you are looking for any textiles classes in the Swansea area.
Tasha has the patience of a saint and offers a range of classes including crochet, hand embroidery and machine sewing. I've done a few classes with her and she even lets me back in the studio. Tasha passionately believes in empowerment through learning new skills and brings her own passions and enthusiasm to each lesson. She offers courses ranging from basic skills to improving and then on to advanced techniques, all ably backed up with tea and cake as necessary. If it wasn't for her amazing attitude I would never have braved using a sewing machine as an adult, following my less than stellar success at school. I have no hesitation to recommend Tasha to teach new skills or to dust the old ones off and breathe new life into them.
