May 18th & 19th / September 14th & 15th 2019 at Quay Street Studios, Cardigan
Two day course £265
Create a relaxed style and versatile handbag from Cambrian Wool tweed with Angela Pitcher Dowdell.
This two day sewing course is aimed at beginner/intermediate level sewers. The relaxed style handbag you will create has two pockets and a key chain inside so you can easily locate whatever you are looking for. Its compact size is deceivingly spacious – it will hold an ipad along with your other bits and bobs. If you need some extra space then you can carry your bag by the short handles.
If you are at the very start of your sewing journey there will be some sewing tasks where you will require assistance from the Make it in Wales team. If you are intermediate level it is anticipated the stitching of the bag will be straightforward. Whatever level of sewing confidence you have cutting, stitching and finishing your bag will be a satisfying experience.
You can choose one of the six Cambrian Wool tweeds for your bag. All the bags will be lined with a robust cotton fabric and finished with locally made leather straps.
