For years Kate has honed her craft by creating weird and wonderful costumes for theatre – both West End and Broadway, tv and many blockbuster films. Thanks to her passion for reducing waste and increasing sustainability, she loves to find unique and creative ways to reuse and repurpose our everyday fabrics, give them a new lease of life and bring a smile to people’s faces. Through learning simple sewing techniques, Kate believes this ability is within us all - beautiful creations can be made from that jumper in the back of the cupboard that’s never worn or clothes your children have grown out of - the possibilities are limitless, we are held back by not having the know how to fire up our imagination! Our own and our loved one’s clothing and fabric can evoke treasured memories and they need not be thrown away when they are no longer being used. Carefully designed and finished creations can fully capture these memories and emotions and help bring them back into our everyday to be treasured again with a smile!
Kate is an experienced costume maker, and will help you make your festive creations using easy to pick up sewing techniques, all in a fun atmosphere.
