Our wax bag workshop is a great opportunity to come and create a functional and stylish accessory. The bag will have complimentary pockets to store all your key pieces such as keys, purse etc. The workshop is suitable for beginners and more advanced sewers.  


Date: 14th October 2022

Time: 10.00am – 4.00pm


Please note – Sewers of all abilities are welcome at our sewing workshops. We do however recommend bringing your own sewing machine so that you can become more confident in using your own machine but we do also have machines and equipment we can loan you.


What's included in the course:

During the workshop you will have a choice of two patterns to create your bag. You will be guided through how to prepare your pieces, how to work with and sew wax cotton and how to insert pockets. You will learn how to construct the piece and use components to give the bag a professional finish.

You will be provided with full instructions and a pattern to take away and each step will be fully explained throughout the day.


This workshop includes the materials, hardware and components to make the outer bag. The main fabric we will be using is waxed cotton. Waxed cotton naturally marks when being folded and this is considered part of the appeal and design of the fabric. There will be a choice of colours available at the workshop.

We also provide cake and refreshments to enjoy throughout the day, if you have an allergies we should be aware of, please let us know when booking your place.


What you will need to bring:

You will need to provide your own sewing machine and basic sewing kit alongside 1/2m of a lining fabric of your choice.

Please bring your own lunch. You may choose to bring a pen and notebook if you wish to make notes throughout the day.
