Design, Paint & Stitch – July 2018

July 29, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Paint Stitch and Sip Class Upcycled World

What is Design, Paint & Stitch?

Gather your friends for a social evening with a difference!  You will design, paint and stitch your very own hand-made clutch bag. NO SEWING or PAINTING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, it’s all about the fun!!!

This is a brilliant opportunity to socialise, learn new skills and get creative at the same time. You’ll leave with a fabulous accessory designed by you and memories to last a lifetime.

What will you do in this class?

During the class you will design and paint the fabric for your bag using fabric paints, textile stamps,  fabric pens, screen printing and mark making.  Sewing and painting instruction will be provided by experienced Designers.

Once you’ve hand-painted your fabric, you’ll assemble it and sew it into a clutch bag to take home or go out and continue the party!

All sewing and painting materials, as well as light refreshments are included.

Why take a Design, Paint & Stitch class?

Design, Paint & Stitch is an uplifting and motivating experience and at the end you get to take home your very own hand painted and sewn clutch bag.

This is not a sewing class to teach sewing, it’s a social event that includes sewing. It’s a opportunity for you to play and create in a fun, friendly and supportive environment. It’s also a great way to learn how to upcycle unwanted fabrics and how to repair / restyle old clothes.

The timing is between lunch and dinner, perfect for carrying on your evening. Rain, snow or shine we will be having a good time!
