Hailing from the wilds of Norfolk, Pippa has spent most of her life with a needle in hand. Surrounded by textiles form a young age, dressmaking was her chosen path. Having trained in pattern cutting and dressmaking, Pippa has created a full range of garments and accessories. This could include everything from comedy hats to wedding dresses, it’s been a varied career. She enjoys the detail of collating the clients ideas and putting it all together to create their own individual outfit. This could include classic tailoring or a bountiful array of beads and feathers.
Having taught both privately and for Norfolk adult education for the last 10 years she enjoys the variety of each class. This has ranged from sharing the techniques of basic or more complex dressmaking, to adding colour to fabrics and embroidery with Creative textiles. Pippa enjoys seeing the moment of recognition when ‘the penny drops’. Watching as people blossom, gaining confidence and putting that first zip in or making that French knot. Pippa hopes to ease you through your favoured project one stitch at a time.
