Hanley Farms, Queenstown
I am a trained seamstress & have also completed fashion design qualifications. I have worked with a wide range of materials, colours, patterns & styles for more than 20 years now. I usually design & make clothing for women & children. I can teach from very basic stitching to create patterns and bit more complex designs. I can take up to 2 students at a time.
T I K K I Studio started as an effort to promote sustainability in the consumption of textile goods by connecting consumers, designers and makers through a sewing workshop that encourages the public to repair, upcycle and sew textile goods like clothing and bags. Acknowledging that sewing is a dying life skill that used to be passed down from mothers to daughters/sons, T I K K I Studio wants to continue that tradition of creating special bonds and sentiments and passing down a skill through our services, may it be between family or friends or our community. The accessible and fun sewing workshops provide a social space for people to feel empowered to sew their goods. Through this, you will have an opportunity to make sustainable and conscious choices and to give a prolonged life to your old items or second-hand purchases.
