When you want to wear more creative fashion the D.I.Y. sewing course at STUDIO 24 IS JUST IT!

It is a BASIC starters course in 6 lessons, which provides crafting techniques, sewing skills, inspirations, knowledge about DIY trends as well technical details for the use of ready-to-trace and cut patterns.

It’s a DIY home-sewing course to kick-off with upcycling (creating new items from old clothes); pimping (decorating or extending extra’s to create a funky look) restylen (add changes -so the item will look different) and slow fashion (fashion cut from new fabrics).
It’s fun and relaxing and also tremendously creative.

The TEXTILE ZONE is based at STUDIO 24 located in XXXdam-West; formerly Wilhelmina Gasthuisterrein near the Nicolaas Beetsstraat.

Address: Jeltje de Bosch Kemperpad 24.

STUDIO 24 is the workroom of Desiree Jonkers. A retroartist whose work is autonomous and fashionable.
The workroom is suitable for six persons. When you finished the Basic Course you can step to the next level; with a course; strippencard or INDIE Workshop.
