Wax cotton tote bag with leather handles


Come along and make your very wax cotton tote from a choice of brown, navy, oilve or copper waxed cotton. All of which will be teamed with a brown leather handle and either silver, antique brass or gold hardware. 

During the course of this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of bag making techniques; cutting and preparing the fabric, working with fusing, how to use bag making hardware incuding magnets and attaching the leather handles with rivets.

All wax cotton , tools, bag making suppplies and hardware are provided. However to make your bag your own you are required to bring along a piece of fabric for the lining. This should be a light to medium weight cotton, if possible something with a bit of stability which will help the bag retain its structure but not anything too thick. Please bring about haf a metre.

This workshop is being led by Rebecca.
