What skills will I learn?
The zippered bag workshop will teach you to sew straight lines and seams and insert an exposed zipper with lining. These bags can be used for cosmetics, purses, pencil cases, and adapted to any size to suit your own purpose. I have a giant one for my knitting! You can then use the techniques you have learned to make quick personlised Christmas or birthday gifts at little cost. Material and zips will be provided so you don’t need to bring anything, but you are welcome to bring along something from your home fabric stash if you wish to use it to make up a set.
What will I make?
You will make a versatile bag which is fully lined with no seams exposed. The bag has a zipper closure and you will learn how to adapt the shape of the bag and the zipper insertion to suit different purposes, and how to box the corners to make it deeper. These bags are lovely to fill with small cosmetic gifts or confectionary for Christmas, and have dozens of uses around the house. I use them for organising phone and tablet charging cables, sewing kits, cosmetics, pens, cotton etc. Once you know how, you will run them off super quick!
What do I need to bring?
All materials are included in the cost, so you will have a lovely finished item, as well as the knowledge and skill to reproduce it!
Tea and coffee will be provided.
How will I be taught?
The class will consist of demonstrations, and explanation of techniques, followed by completing your project at your own pace with help from the Tutor. Classes are small with no more than five participants so you are guaranteed good quality tuition.
