At a Bags by Carmen workshop you get to create your very own bag, from pattern cutting to sewing and riveting. You can learn how to mould, shape, place handles, make pockets, the possibilities are endless.

After selecting the bag workshop of your choice, you will get sent a needs list enabling you to bring your fabric of choice to the workshop already cut and ready to go. I will be able to show you the techniques and skills required to complete that type bag such as a clutch or bumbag which you will get to take that away with you. 

You will need to provide your own machine, fabrics and notions, however I am more than happy to supply and specialist bag hardware that is needed.

Each workshop varies in length from a half day (10-12.30) to a full day (10-3) and the average full day workshop gives you a finished project! You can always break this up into half day sessions if you would rather, its pretty flexible to you.

I am not only available at the workshop but I am there to support you until that project is completed with questions and tips.
