Phil said "My greatest passion is creative pattern cutting and drafting patterns from scratch. Just by applying some simple techniques it's possible to make amazing garments."
Phil has also worked in theatre making costume and acted locally in the Brighton Festival. He is married to a Taiwanese wife and has two sons. Phil looks forward to meeting and teaching Sew in Brighton students at The Sewing Lounge.
"Just had my first experience of the Sew in Brighton Sewing School – and it was great! With only six students in the group, we got lots of one-to-one attention from our excellent tutor, Phil. He was very skilled, knowledgeable and patient in helping us how to create a pattern by replicating a favourite garment. All the high-quality equipment you need is provided (including tea and coffee!) and there's plenty of it so no hanging around waiting. Thank you for a really informative day in a friendly environment." Avril, Trustpilot
