What’s it all about?

This class has been designed to show you a different purpose for your jeans – enabling them to have another life carrying booty of a different kind – come and learn to make a purse that is creative and works as a sampler for future remaking projects.

Your ticket includes a take-home pack of fabric, sashiko needle and waxed thread. This class is suitable for sewing beginners. 

What will we cover?

In this class we will cover basic Kantha and Boro principles and provide you with the means of creating a purse to store your sewing items or perhaps other treasures. All fabrics used in this class are reclaimed, repurposed and reused and provided for you.
