Our course – make a reversible tote bag in a day – is ideal for those with some basic sewing skills including graduates of ReTweed’s Sewing Machine Basics Workshop.

What you will learn

On the day you will create a 2D reversible tote which introduces some of basic elements of garment construction. You will be working with a range of co-ordinating textiles and fabric types and the workshop will introduce some design and composition aspects.

This is the perfect workshop to start your journey into more advanced projects and bag making as you will experience a wide variety of tasks involved in making more complex sewing projects. In order to complete your bag on a day we will use part pre-prepared components but will also include an introduction to basic elements of pattern cutting.

Do no fear however, there is still plenty of work and learning for you. During the day you will also learn how to sew in curves, clip seams and some techniques for finishing off with hand stitching, as well as understanding how to produce a double-sided project ensuring synergy between colours and patterns to accomplish a high quality tote bag.

Your Tutor for the day

This workshop will be led by our Tutor, Stacey Ferguson who will direct you through the process and ensure you get lots of hands-on experience. Stacey is a former graduate of ReTweed’s 12-week course, a valued member of our staff team and an experienced maker with extensive sewing experience who also manages ReTweed’s bespoke commissions.

Workshop Cost: £35.00 – all materials, refreshments and  light lunch included.
