Workshop Structure

This workshop runs on Fridays (not every Friday, check available dates above) from 2pm to 7pm

2pm - 4pm

In the first part of this workshop, you will select the style of bag you'd like to make and choose from our selection of beautiful leathers. You'll then cut your pieces in preparation for assembling your bag.

The second part of the course will be all about assembling the bag. In this workshop we will be constructing the bags using a flatbed sewing machine. You will also add any hardware and finishing touches to your bag.

What styles can I choose from?

During this workshop you'll have time to make one of the following handbags.

Zip-up Shoulder Bag

This bag is just toooo cute 🌸
She's a perfect day-to-night bag, fully lined with an inside pocket and a super cool-girl chain strap. 😎

Leather Hobo Bag

This everyday hobo tote bag is a favourite amongst the I Can Make Bags team ⭐️ She's fully lined with an inside pocket and big enough for a 13" laptop. Oh and she's got an adjustable strap and a magnetic closure. ❤️
