Classes that involve sewing, embroidery and embellishment are aimed at building confidence and skills, and preserving craftsmanship. They can be entirely focussed on skills, or geared towards an end product for an alternative creative evening in Newcastle! Private tuition is also available upon request.


A selection of introductory classes to get you over that first hurdle, as well as a mixture of more socially focussed classes for an alternative creative evening in town! Skills covered include sewing,  fabric manipulation, hand embroidery and embellishment. To see what classes Melanie Kyles has scheduled, check out the events page!


Whether you fancy something that focuses on developing your creative practice or something for a special event, Melanie Kyles has you covered! The last private class consisted of best seller 'Introduction to Sewing' followed by prosecco and birthday cake, but there is also the option of something completely new if you have something in mind.


Melanie Kyles tailors her approach to fit the clients needs, whether that be helping women create jewellery in a two hour session that is fit for market, or a two day class showing versatile and extensive fabric manipulation techniques in a fine art context. Melanie has delivered classes for Newcastle University, We are Explore, The Millin Charity and Gateshead Libraries.
