The workshops are 3 to 4 hours long, accessible to beginners, and allow you to discover sewing by making useful and durable everyday objects and clothes.
Training to become autonomous
The trainings last 2 to 3 sessions of 3 hours, and allow you to acquire a complete competence, which you can then use for all your projects.
The paths to becoming a pro
The courses allow for more in-depth training in sewing and to become autonomous, with 5 to 6 3-hour sessions (which include training on all machines), and time to work on the project between sessions.
Sewing at les Affûtés includes:
A lot of workshops, over a session or several, to discover or improve your skills
A collaborative workshop, with all the tools to create yourself
Individual sessions with a sewing expert to make a project or repair damaged clothing
Who give the sewing classes?
The Affûteurs (“The Sharpeners”) are specialists who have been working in their field for several years and love the idea of sharing their knowledge with beginners and amateurs to make them more skilled. They’re all bilingual (English/French).
A sewing class between friends?
We often organize sewing classes or repair sessions especially for groups of friends, families or corporate teams.
Give a sewing class as a gift
You want to help someone in his or her manual projects, by offering them a class, time at Les Affûtés, or an individual session with a specialist, to launch a beautiful project?
That’s a nice gift, and we’re happy to help you do it. You can book a gift card with the value of your choice, and we will welcome your guest to live a great experience!
