About this Event
In this workshop The Virtual Thread founder, Jane Grimshaw, will teach you how to make a set of unique hand decorated buttons to revamp even the most tired and boring of garments. The workshop is a friendly and informal place for everyone from the novice stitcher to the seriously obsessed. We chat, we laugh, we make connections and have fun whilst being creative.
Jane is highly trained in the art of wielding needles and pins. She comes from a long line of tailors that goes back three centuries. When not delivering online sewing workshops to the discerning masses, Jane makes costumes for stage productions in London’s glamorous West End, for the likes of the Phantom of the Opera and Lion King. You’ll also have seen her work on many films and television series. Teaching is in Jane’s blood: she has taught pattern cutting and costume construction in higher education for more than 25 years
