Event description
Come and make an everyday carry bag out of durable, recycled vinyl banners!

About this Event

Have you always wanted to learn how to use a sewing machine properly but not found the time?

Have you ever wondered what we do with the giant vinyl banners that are up around the place?

Over three sessions, come and make an everyday carry bag with our amazing trainer Jimmy Eng. There'll even be the opportunity to customise the design to meet your very specific needs.

These are not just any bag but a Creative Commons from Mafia Design championed by Adam Savage from Myth Busters and Tested fame. No experience or sewing skills are required.

The only pre-requisite is a willingness to have a go and a laugh if it goes a little sideways. All materials are provided, and you will be required to attend all three sessions to get the job done.

This is a 3-part workshop running on Wednesday 18 Nov, 25 Nov and 2 Dec.
