Join us for a fun and relaxed afternoon of sewing, good company and good food, whilst making a contribution to protecting our planet from plastic.

With the Big Supermarkets finally agreeing to phase out plastic bags this year we thought we would start our 2018 activities with a bag-making workshop. With the emphasis on REDUCE, RESUSE and RECYCLE we are going to make our bags out of recycled fabric where possible. So raid your scrap basket, dig around at St Vinnies, get out your old sheets, pillow cases, scraps of fabric, old jeans and shirts – all can be made into new bags which, with a little imagination can look beautiful as well as functional.

This workshop will be hosted by the wonderful Colette Reynolds owner of award winning Bronte Sewing Room. Colette has worked in the fashion industry for over 30 years and has been teaching sewing for many years. Colette will also tell us about her work in reducing plastic waste in the ocean, in her role as the founder of The Last Straw Bronte. You can see what she is up to here. She is a stalwart member of the Bronte community and a great connector of people. She is one of my favourite people and we look forward to introducing you to her.

Our bag pattern is simple enough for beginner sewists and can be adapted to the imagination and skill of the more experienced. We will guide you through the steps so you can go home with a shopping bag and the skills to make many more.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • You are welcome to bring your own sewing machine but there are plenty available as well as scissors, measuring tapes etc.
  • bring your material and thread to match.
  • Pattern supplied.

Suitable for age 8 and up. (children to be accompanied by an adult).

The Bronte Sewing Room is a wheel-chair accessible venue.
