Make Your Own Bag

Description

Atelier Beside the Sea is excited to announce an exclusive teaching partnership with Diana Upridge and DOLLY Clothing. Bringing her ever popular ‘kit classes’ to Brighton, you can now learn how to make a complete garment and gain new confidence in your sewing abilities.

The DOLLY ‘cutility’ look is about pairing hard-wearing fabrics, like denim and cords, with contrasting bright, playful pops of primary colours. It’s also about versatility. This bag is your tote, your handbag, your shopper, your everything bag! It fits a 13-inch laptop, has a handy inside pocket for your phone, carry handles AND an adjustable shoulder strap.

This class is a great place for beginners to start their sewing adventure.

The session will start with a brief introduction to our sewing machines. If you are not familiar with using a domestic sewing machine, we recommend you join Diana on her Introduction to Sewing course first.

Diana Uprichard is the founder of Dolly Clothing. An experienced designer, seamstress and teacher, Diana believes that sewing is nourishment for the soul.

From the Dolly studio in central Lewes, Diana runs sewing courses for adults, provides a bespoke alteration service and designs her own sustainable clothing collection. When she’s not in the studio, Diana can be found teaching school children how to express their creativity through the art of sewing.

A dedicated campaigner for sustainable fashion, Diana leads the Dolly team in awareness-raising campaigns and events. Designed to inform and inspire, Dolly’s events explore why our clothes are costing the earth and what we can each do to be the change.

Diana’s vision for a sustainable fashion future is built on her belief that there’s a wealth of power in a tiny needle and thread.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Refreshments will be available during the class.

You will be provided with a DOLLY kit for this class which is a sustainable way to make garments. Each piece has been pattern cut from deadstock which means no fabrics have been manufactured for your garment.
