Sew sew sew your bag

The Studio London, which is run Beth Nicholas and Libby Rose, is a sewing facility offering classes and resources that range from dressmakers' chalk to industrial over lockers. Beth and Libby are launching a new workshop this month called Recycle and here's what their press release has to say about it...

"We are running sewing and craft workshops in Greenwich market on Saturday the 17th, 24th and 31st January. We have all the machines set up and ready to go so take a seat with us. Each week, for 3 weeks in January, we will run a different fun and easy project for you to learn, make and take away to show off to your friends and peers…. Turn an old curtain into a glitzy new handbag, last season's skirt into a chic 50s apron to show off at your next dinner party! Bring something found or bought along to the market or use what is provided."

Beginners are always welcome, and the cost is £5 per hour or £7.50 for two hours. Check out their website or blog for other classes, including Make Do and Mend where you can make sexy slippers out of old drapes, or Brilliant Bags where you can learn to make a recycled fabric grocery bag.
