Date & Time
-Sunday July 18th, 12:00 - 16:30 with a 30-minute tea break

Who is this class for?
Those with minimal to no experience sewing are welcome, those who are experienced will also take many ideas and skills away from the workshop nature of this class. This workshop is designed to allow you to make your bag/s with as much complexity or ease as you desire.

What will I learn?
This workshop will empower you to create your own reusable cloth bags from basic geometric shapes, adding pockets, contrasting details, a variety of options for handles, and also the opportunity to decorate using the offered settings on our domestic sewing machines. 

For those that are new to a sewing machine, you will also be inducted into how a domestic sewing machine works, including how to thread the machine, the bobbin, and also given some practice sewing exercises. 

The class will teach you about the importance of seam allowances, fabric weights, and also the aesthetic decisions needed to realise your own bag designs.

What will be provided?
-All equipment and materials will be provided such as scissors, snips, and pins. Their use is included in the cost of the course.

-A variety of textiles for different purposes and skill levels. The designs we have created for this workshop are modular, and thus we have decided to pre-cut a broad range of selected pieces for you to choose from for your own bag design/s. There will be other textiles to choose from should you wish to advance your bag design beyond our provided matrix of choice. 

-You’re welcome to make 1 - 2 bags, depending on how much time we get and you will also be welcome to take a copy of the patterns that we’ve created for this workshop

-Most work will be completed on domestic sewing machines which will be provided. If you have your own machine that you are familiar with, you are welcome to bring it along, you may learn more about it through our class. Bear in mind that it could be a distance to walk to and from your car space to the studio. 

-Coffee, black and Japanese green tea will be provided for the tea break

Do I need to bring anything?
-A notebook and pen to take notes during class.
-Please bring your own water bottle to help us with our COVID-Safe plan.
