Come along and learn from the tutor as they take you through a step-by-step guide to designing and hand stitching your very own design onto a calico bag.

You will choose from vintage silk and cotton scarves, beautiful fabrics, bright felts and trimmings from the wicker trunk of inspiration to create a one-off unique design.

You will try some embroidery, share your existing skills and learn some new ones in a lively workshop setting.
