Join Aileen for some fun with handbags (but we won't be dancing around them!). You'll learn all about hardware and notions, making different types of pockets, adjusting for the style and features that you enjoy. Depending on your pace of work, we'll aim to make 3-4 different styles/sizes ranging from snap purse to project bags and shopping tote. Just don't tell anyone you've made them or your friends will want them all too!
We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our refurbished studio! It is accessed down a flight of stairs from the shop with alternative access direct to the basement for anyone requiring an entrance without steps. If you do have any accessibility needs or questions, please let us know in the comments when you book.
When attending any class, we will meet you at the shop door 10mins before the start time. If you are running late and arrive to a closed front door, please walk down the side alley (Wilson's Close) to the signposted side entrance and ring the doorbell.
This group is not suitable for complete beginners to sewing as you must be able to fill a bobbin, thread a machine and sew with accurate straight seam allowance. If you are completely new to sewing, we suggest you try our Beginner Sewing Weekend.
This class is suitable for adults only, age 16+.
Please carefully check our Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
