Private Lessons & Specialty Classes

What’s New this Summer?

This summer we are opening up our studio for Private Lessons and Studio time rentals!

Private 1-on-1 lessons are taught by our lead instructor and head designer, Laurie. Simply tell us what you want to make and Laurie can help you get started. After your lesson, you are welcome to stay and work on your project in the studio. Lessons are booked in 30min sessions and studio time is pay-as-you-go.

Adult specialty classes at La Movida will teach you the necessary skills to bring your design from start to finish. Our classes are open to all levels of experience, from beginners with a passion to create, to intermediate and advanced sewers that want to build on their existing design skills. Specialty classes are taught by industry-trained instructors. The small classes will allow instructors to engage and assist with each student’s design needs. Additional supplies may be required and will be informed by the instructor before the start of class.

Design is more than just sewing. Join us to explore and express your creative ideas!
