Costumier Dee Sheehan regularly collaborates with Yinka Shonibare, helping him create the beautifully detailed Dutch Wax costumes now on display. For this one-day workshop Dee has devised patterns to help you make a child's pinafore or a pair of dungarees using Dutch Wax fabrics. When you book please let us know which of the two outfits you would like to make during the workshop; both are suitable for a child aged 5-6. This workshop is most suitable for those with some experience of dressmaking but beginners welcome. Sewing machines provided.
