This is an ideal course for students with good sewing skills, who find it difficult to buy ready-made dresses that fit correctly. Or for students who would like to create original designs for themselves. This is a two day course which will cover cutting a basic block to fit you, from which a paper pattern will be cut for a design of your choice. The pattern will be made up into a toile to fit the student. You will need the ability to use your own sewing machine, which you will need to bring with you.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back. Bettany Hughes
