How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe – £10

Very few of us have the wardrobe we need. A well organised one leaves time and energy for the more important things in life. Beginning with core neutrals and  introducing flattering patterns and coordinating colours, you can start to build a collection of clothes and accessories which showcase your personal style and also save you time, and more importantly money!

How to be Retail Savvy – £10

With a lifetime’s experience in the business Sara will take you behind the scenes and share the tricks the big retail chains use to part us from our cash. What is a bargain? and where to find them?

Colour Coordinate with Confidence – £10

There is no doubt that we all have colours that suit us more than others, and many of us have had their ‘Colours done’, sometimes more than once and with confusingly different outcomes. I have a fresh approach, taking the old adage, ‘I can tell you, I can show you, but if I teach you how to do it yourself’, it will stick.  In this Etcetera Style Workshop I explain colour theory,  examine our relationship to colour, and show you how to use a colour wheel to experiment with different and exciting colour combinations. There are individual and group exercises and at the end of the workshop everyone will be better equipped to dress stylishly and creatively.

Shop Your Shape, Not Your Size – £10

Buying clothes should be one of the most pleasurable experiences in the world, but so often it isn’t. Unless like me it is your job to spend many hours reading fashion magazines, and visiting designers and manufacturers looking at new ranges,  it can be dispiriting when what you are looking for just doesn’t seem to exist. IT’S NOT JUST YOU!  As with anything, preparation is key and that is what this workshop is all about. I will take you through the latest trends whilst also showing you different styles to flatter your bodyshape.

Ten Ways To Tie a Scarf – £5

A scarf has become a must-have accessory and we all have more than we can count, but do we use them effectively? In this Etcetera Style Workshop I show you how to. Using a variety of shapes and fabrics you will learn how to coordinate and tie the perfect scarf to give you instant style, and put the finishing touch to any outfit. By providing lots of scarves on which to practice it is my proud boast that no one goes away without learning a minimum of three new ways.

Those Finishing touches – £10

They say ‘the devil is in the detail’ and it is certainly true when it comes to stylish dressing.  At this workshop Sara shows how with the right accessories an outfit can be transformed from the ordinary to the exceptional.

Etcetera Coffee Morning

On the third Tuesday of every month Sara hosts a Coffee Morning in the Roastery where we talk about current trends, latest celebrity outfits, how to achieve perennial style, you name it. There’s no need to book – just turn up, treat yourself to a coffee and enjoy some fashion chat.
