Textile Carry Bag
Makers Escape Workshop
Saturday 28 August
Saturday 28 August 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm$115.00
Join this fun workshop and create your own carry bag.
You’ll receive a kit containing pre-wrapped rope, pre-stitched leather handles, button loop, button, draw string and toggle and lining fabric.
Choose from one of the 3 colour ways available (colour preference must be confirmed prior to the workshop to allow time to prepare the kit). We will contact you via email to confirm your colour preference (after you have booked the workshop).
You’ll learn how to create your own unique carry bag that features soft leather handles, leather button loop closure and a lining panel with
draw cord and toggle.
You’ll receive written instructions and be taken step by step through the construction process.
This is NOT a learn to sew class.
Karen Wright from Zenzero Design will be your tutor and guide you step-by-step through the process.
A lover of all things handcrafted and an all round crafty type, Karen Wright is cut from the same maker’s cloth as Julie Hillier….in fact they are sisters!
Growing up in a very creative household where her parents always had a “hands on – give it a go” attitude, Karen has been making for as long as she can remember, and is equally at home in front of a sewing machine or with a drill or piece of sandpaper in her hand!! Karen’s favourite thing is to poke around in secondhand shops searching for her next up-cycling project. With an eye for colour and a healthy love of textiles and paint, Karen is in her element when she is making soft furnishings, replacing the legs on a retro coffee table or repainting a feature wall!
Her love for all things creative has seen Karen turn her hand to a variety of crafts including mosaic, quilting, ceramics, leather craft, jewellery making, embroidery, weaving, dress making and furniture restoration – just to name a few.
Participants should be confident sewers and are required to bring their own sewing machine and accessories.
