About the event

Join us to try out some hand-sewing techniques to upcycle your own winter wearable! We'll be creating felt embroidered embellishments to add to clothing, which can also be used as decorations for your tree or added to the front of a greetings card.

We'll be running three one-hour slots throughout the day: 10-11am, 12-1pm and 2-3pm. 

Since this will be our last workshop in the space before Christmas, we'll also have some festive refreshments, lots of seasonal tunes and general merriment! 

Skill Level: All ages and abilities welcome.

You’ll need: All you'll need to bring is a jumper you'd like to give a new lease of life to! We'll also have a few spares, if you don't have one to bring with you.

Materials included: We'll have examples of the types of decorative additions you could use, templates of a festive theme to create embellishments for your garment, and all the tools and supplies to help you customise your garment. 

Tickets: the workshop costs £10 and you can book here - Eventbrite Tickets

Led by: Holly Carr & Kim Searle
