Create your own up-cycled ‘suitbag’
June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Create your own up-cycled ‘suitbag’ – £30 (£10 non-refundable deposit is required on booking, as places are limited)
Take an old suit, waistcoat, shirt, tie or other formalwear and learn how to transform it into a unique up-cycled bag. Designer Jack Roberts has been up-cycling unused and unwanted clothing into new fashion accessories since 2012 and in this workshop he will teach you the techniques he uses and the designs he has perfected. You will have the choice to make a small handbag, a tote bag, a medium satchel or a large hold-all.
We will have a selection of vintage clothes that you can work with on the day but if you have any old suits, shirts or ties that you would like to use bring them along.
