Your choices for fabrics are amazing and true to your word – my bag is just gorgeous! Thank you for making one of my very few evenings out for myself so relaxing and enjoyable – knowing that I didn’t have to do or buy anything before hand was the icing on the cake, so thank you so much!

Our Bags and Purses workshops are designed to give you a flavour of how easy making a bag can be (and how satisfying!) if someone just shows you the ropes.

And we give you a complete set of instructions with each workshop to make sure that you have all that you need to make your bags at home.
