Workshop held on Zoom, for a maximum of 4 people.
This workshop is suitable for beginners who would like to progress to making a simple project, or anyone who hasn't sewn for a while and would like a refresher.
Please note that you need to be able to wind your bobbin and thread your machine. (please contact me if you are unable to do this, as I also offer 1-2-1 lessons for complete beginners)
During the workshop we will be making handles, a pocket and a square base for your bag. Your bag will also be reversible so you get two bags in one, with no visible raw edges.
You will be guided through the process of making your bag, as we sew along together. You can interact with the tutor and other participants.
Fabric will be provided, cut to size. You will receive an email with a choice of fabric to choose from after booking.
Fabric is 100% heavy weight cotton, which makes for a very strong bag.
Detailed written instructions (with photos) will be emailed to you upon completion of the workshop, so you will have something to refer back to.
Most people who have attended have gone on to make lots more bags for themselves and as gifts, I think you will be addicted!!
Its such fun to make your own bags and you would also be doing your bit for the environment, with handmade bags that will last!

Really happy with this course. It completely delivered what it promised and more. Judi was a great teacher and a lot of fun. She went out of her way to adapt the course for my wants and take me through all that I needed very patiently. I like the zoom 1-2-1 in these times and pleased that it worked so well. I'll be looking for more like this, and definitely more from Judi. Thank you.
