Frequently Asked Questions
How do the workshops work?
All of our creative workshops are open to all and they're a great way to meet people that share the same interests and ethos when it comes to mending your clothing. It's also a fantastic way to get those creative juices flowing and learn a new skill whilst producing something unique.
Our workshops make brilliant activities for those hosting baby showers or hen parties, for you to create memorable keepsakes for the baby or the bride-to-be whilst eating cake and sipping on a lovely glass of bubbly!
We also offer private classes if you would prefer one-to-one tuition, feel free to contact us anytime to discuss a suitable time that works best for you.
Should I bring anything?
Here at RESTORATION LONDON we encourage mending your clothing and therefore offer a 10% discount to those bringing in their own item of clothing to either fix or use as fabric during the workshop. If you will be bringing in your own item of clothing to fix please select the 10% discount option before proceeding to checkout.
All other art supplies and materials etc will be provided.
For some workshops, baby showers and hen parties, we do provide the materials. Please check the details in the description of the workshop that you’re interested in.
Snacks, alcoholic beverages and cakes for the special occasion are most welcome for the hen parties and baby showers. Please just let us know that you will be bringing these along prior to the party.
The majority of the workshops are suitable for complete beginners. However, some may be more advanced or a follow on from a previous workshop, therefore please check the level details in the description provided.
Where are the workshops based?
Our workshops run all over London at various independent venues. We are also able to come to your home if you choose to host a crafty party there, or perhaps you have a venue in mind that you would like us to come to. Please do check with the venue you've hired before the event to confirm, then we'd be more than happy to bring the creative workshop to you!
If you have a particular date in mind for the event and would like to use one of our lovely venues, please let us know at least 1 month in advance so we can check the availability and share the details (including pictures of the venue etc) with you.
Also feel free to bring decorations to spruce the place up too!
What time should I arrive at the workshop?
You can arrive 5 minutes before the workshop to allow enough time for our tutor to have it all set up and ready to go! If you are running late, please let us know on the phone number provided on the contact page, but please do try to arrive on time if possible.
If you would like to decorate before the baby shower or hen party begins, you can arrive 15 minutes before it is due to start.
Have a dietary requirement?
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements prior to the workshop or party and we will do our best to provide something for you to snack on whilst getting your craft on!
What if I am unable to attend my workshop?
If you are unable to make your workshop, please let us know as far in advance as possible and we will do our best to book you onto a workshop at a later date.
Are the workshops refundable?
Unfortunately our workshops are non-refundable, however if you are unable to attend we will try to book you on to a future workshop.
