Service Description

Using the smallest of offcuts of fabrics, unwanted threads and all those buttons and beads lying around to create textured art pieces. Exploring those fancy stitches on your sewing machine and free embroidery to make embellished pieces which can be mounted onto cards, made into brooches, patches to add a bit of colour to old clothes etc. This is the perfect workshop to learn how to use up every scrap of fabric, trims, threads and general haberdashery. All materials and equipment required to complete the workshop will be supplied, but if you do have any lightweight summer dresses, duvet covers, skirts or shirts you’d would like to use for your knickers, then please do bring them along. That also goes for your sewing machine and kit if you have favourite equipment that you like to use. Its easier to learn the quirks of your own machine, than try to fathom out a new one! Entry into the workshop is by suggested donation of £3 per session (yes that’s just £3!) which helps towards the running costs of the classes. This is a suggested donation, so if you are unable to cover the costs, please do get in touch and we will create a space for you for free. These workshops are part of our TeXInnovation Partnership with Cultivate Communities CIC and the University of Exeter, and are funded by the National Lottery Community Action Fund. This means that places are strictly limited, therefore as per our T&C's, we require 48 hours notice (at least) to cancel your place. Any "no shows" will be invoiced at the full amount of the course (£45 per person) as we cannot allow these places to be unused. Thank you for your understanding in this matter :)
