All materials will be provided for this course and will be covered by your course fee.


You have the option to bring your own sewing machine or to borrow one of our collection of vintage sewing machines. These vintage machines are often used by corset makers for their strength and durability.



If you chose to bring your own machine please ensure you are familiar with it (can thread it, change a presser foot or needle etc), and please also bring with you spare needles to fit your machine.



All other equipment and materials will be provided.



The course will be held at Moody Corsetry Studio, a dedicated sewing space alongside the Moody family home. The studio is in Salfords, Surrey - a 2 minute walk from Salfords train station (just 40 minutes from London Bridge), and just 5 miles from Gatwick Airport. There is ample, free on-street parking.



The Studio itself is small (but perfectly formed) and up three steep steps. If you require a more accessible venue please pop me an email to discuss your requirements.


For any student wishing to attend from further afield we are within a short walk from the Premier Inn hotel at Mill House for overnight accommodation. For those looking for a more luxurious overnight stay we have Nutfield Priory Hotel and Spa a 15 minute drive away.


Tea, Coffee, soft drinks, and biscuits etc will be provided. We ask students to bring along a packed lunch.
