DENIM MASTERCLASS – HOW TO MAKE A DENIM TOTE BAG
Aimed at amateur sewers who would like to gain experience on industrial sewing machines, Blackhorse Lane Ateliers will show you how to create your own on-trend tote bag in raw, selvedge denim.
The class is ideal as an introduction to industrial sewing machines and for those eventually looking to take the more advanced 5-pocket jean masterclass for which industrial machine experience is required. All materials, including a choice of fabrics, is included in the cost. Workshops are for a maximum of 4 participants to ensure an intimate but relaxed class.
There is another workshop on Wednesday 5th February 6pm-9pm
