Leather Trimmed Clutch
Makers Escape Workshop
Sunday 29 August
29 August @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm$115.00
Create your own leather trimmed clutch bag.
You will receive a kit containing all the materials required to finish your own stylish clutch bag.
Choose from a selection of leather colour options (your kit will include pre-cut leather panels, pre-stitched wrist strap, metal bag hardware, pre-cut wadding and a coloured zip) and team your leather with one of the gorgeous fabrics available for the exterior and lining of your clutch. The images on this page are indicative only.
Written instructions are also provided to take you step by step through the construction process.
This is NOT a learn to sew class. Participants should be familiar with basic sewing and inserting a zip.
You’ll be required to bring your own sewing machine and accessories.
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.
Sewing experience is necessary.
