Can you ever have too many beautiful purses? These purses can be used for so many things….as a purse when you just need the bare essentials to duck to the shops, storing jewellery or other small items when you travel, as a craft bag for a creative project, holding some baby essentials or medications and or as a great gift bag that eliminates single use wrapping paper!!
This workshop will be held in our studio, and due to COVID restrictions we have restricted the number of attendees. We will also ask you to observe our COVID-safe guidelines.
In this workshop I’ll be sharing all my purse making secrets!
