Join us for a crafty workshop in our Tobacco Factory Loft, with this fun and accessible intro to sewing your own clothes!

In our ~ 3-hour workshop, you will be sewing a simple summer blouse and matching hair accessory. All you’ll have to do is rock-up to our workshop and get started on the fun part – designing and making your very own made-to-measure summery top

Choose from a selection of fabrics (all provided) and be guided through the process step-by-step. This is a beginner-friendly workshop – if you’ve never used a sewing machine before, that’s ok, we’ll guide you through the process!
