Kāpiti Coast Sewing Lesson: Make Your Own Bag
Juli Hunter Eco Friendly Style, Waikanae, Kapiti Coast
SAT 11 MAY 2:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.
Have you ever dreamed of sewing your own pieces, but you aren't sure where to start?
Or perhaps you already know your way around a sewing machine, but want to brush up on your skills?
In our "make your own bag" sewing lesson, we'll teach you how to sew your own shopping bag from recycled materials. All materials and the pattern will be provided.
This is a really creative class - let your imagination run wild!
Juli's group sewing lessons are a fun, practical, and safe place to learn the basics of sewing here on the Kāpiti Coast. They are suitable for beginners through to intermediate sewers. Everyone, of all ages and genders, is welcome to attend. Everything is provided for the class, including patterns, a wide range of materials to choose from, use of industrial and domestic sewing machines, and use of overclockers. You just need to bring yourself! Please note, we require a minimum of 24 hours' notice if you'd like to exchange your lesson for another date or request a refund. This is so that we can keep our class sizes small. We cannot give refunds or exchange one class for another if we are not notified with at least 24 hours to spare. Paper patterns will be available to purchase after the lesson. Our goal is to empower our community to repair and upcycle their clothes, reduce textile waste in our beautiful local environment, and harness collective change in the way we think about fashion.
