Workshops

Focussed sessions where you will work on and complete a garment within the lesson time - workshops are great for learning new garment techniques, and fun, relaxing weekends. Great for those tired of mass-produced shop bought garments, or anyone who wants to bring a bit of their own personality to the clothes they wear. Participants must be capable sewers, with recent basic garment making experience.

To see & book our current scheduled classes please see the calendar on our Sewing Lessons page or visit our Facebook page and click on events.

A hands-on workshop where you will make a re-usable cloth nappy


The impact of disposable nappies is well documented - by making your own reusables, you can drastically reduce not only the rubbish you create, but also the cost of clothing your baby. 


The cost of this workshop includes a kit containing all the materials you will need to sew an All-In-2 nappy and a bamboo soaker pad and you will also take home a set of workshop notes full of useful information on nappy care, patterns & suppliers, and instructions for making extra pairs.


The nappy is fully adjustable, featuring a Velcro waist closure and snapped rise. It is designed to fit babies from approximately 3 - 14kgs
