Workshops Galore!

I have come to the realisation that trying to take great clear pictures on a day like today is utterly futile, so I'll just go with it and update them later.

Despite my frustrating fog-ridden morning I am still super excited to be able to share the full line up of new workshops I'll be leading at 'Make & Do' this April and beyond!

Alongside the current ones available for fabulous lampshades, tote bags, cushions and more we will be running a series of workshops covering very basic children's garments (although they can absolutely be adapted for full sized clothing as well!) plus a pyjama afternoon.

I've developed each in the 'Make & Do' pattern-less tradition to leave you not only with a finished garment, but the skills (plus lots of customisation ideas) to draft further items to your own unique specifications.

SIMPLE SKIRTS - 03/04/2014 & 22/04/2014 6.30pm
So first up we have 'Simple Skirts' [£15 + fabric] which will be held on Thursday 3rd and again on Tuesday 22nd April. During this session you'll use custom waist and length measurements to draft and make a very simple colour blocked skirt with an elasticated waistband. A great base for appliqué and customisation.
*A perfect starting point for beginners -a little seam matching is as tricky as it gets!

SUPER SHIRRING - 08/04/2014 6.30pm
'Super Shirring' will be held on Tuesday 8th April [£15 +fabric] during which we will cover the basics of machine shirring to draft and make your choice of a top, skirt or sun dress using custom chest/hip and length measurements.
*Still very simple but best suited to those with good machine control (Pictures to follow!).

SIMPLE SHORTS - 17/04/2014 6.30pm
Next up we have one for the boys! (...and girls of course) 'Simple Shorts' will take place on Thursday 17th April [£15 +fabric]. This workshop entails drafting and making a pair of basic easy fitting shorts, embellished with either patch pockets or colour blocking with an elasticated waistband.
*Again very straightforward but not recommended as a starter workshop (Ask about 'Cushion in an hour' / 'Simple Skirts') (Pictures to follow!).

PERFECT PJ'S - 13/04/2014 2.00pm
During a leisurely Sunday afternoon on the 13th April [£20 +fabric], you will draft and make a pair of pyjama shorts using your own measurements. Using the same fabric / trim you'll also embellish a vest / tee of your choice leaving you with the perfect matching pair!
*Simple construction but not recommended as a starter workshop (Ask about 'Cushion in an hour' / 'Simple Skirts').

If you'd like to come along to any of the workshops above (or indeed any others listed on the Make & Do website) then please feel free to drop me an email or get in touch with Kirsten (either in the shop, or via Facebook) who will provide you with payment info and the measurements you'll need to bring along with you. If you have any queries or concerns regarding difficulty simply ask prior to booking.

It's also worth noting that if you're not able to make any of the dates above then please do get in touch anyway as we'll do our best to schedule a further workshop at a time that suits (subject to availability).

See you there ...I can't wait!
