Workshops

I run workshops on a regular basis in my atelier in Aubonne. Come along and learn a new skill or refresh old skills.

All upcoming workshops are listed here and also posted on Facebook. To register for any of my workshops contact me here.

For more information on my events take a look at my  Facebook page.

If you don’t see what you are looking for and would like a specific workshop, please do let me know. Past workshops can be repeated on demand for a minimum of 2 people. They can also be used as the basis of a private lesson.

All workshops can be run in English or French.

Please, note that I am also available to run workshops for off-site events e.g. schools, companies, fabric shops or market events.

I also love collaborations! If you have an idea, campaign or product launch that you would like Naver couture to be part of, I would love to hear from you!
