Gift yourself a couple hours to get creative, dive into some special fabrics and trims, feel festive and enjoy some snacks over the sewing machine alongside your neighbours.
You will never have to buy and throw out wrapping paper for your family again once you have DIY'd your own special reusable gift bags for this Christmas and years to come.
In this workshop we will be patchwork piecing together colourful fabrics, christmas fabrics - however you would like to. And then exploring the art of embroidery and applique with thread, ribbons, bows, and lace etc to decorate, label or add our merry wishes on too.
This workshop is made accessible at $10 per person thanks to the generous support of Creative Communities Fund.
