There will be 6 main workshop stations. Hosts will be rotating 2 1/2 hr classes 12 - 5.30pm and also selling their handmade wares, vintage clothing, accessories and haberdashery, kits, magazines and published books throughout the day.
You can book in at the workshop of your choice on arrival at 12 noon or just drop in if there's space! Here's a sneak preview of what we've got planned....
Sewing machines at the ready....get 'Reworking Fashion' or 'Chop + Change' with Fashion Antidote and revamp old woollens with TRAID. Horrockses will show you how to transform their printed bed linen into a vintage inspired dress. In celebration of the current Festival of Britain exhibition and celebrations at the Southbank, The Seaside Sisters have developed a special FOB inspired pennant making session. On the 'Refresh your Wardrobe' station discover styling and customising tips from Kustom Box, whilst author Jessica Alden from the Royal School of Needlework will demonstrate beautiful embellishment techniques.
Last but not least I am sharing a station with the new craft magazine Molly Makes who will be making items from recent issues including strawberry pin cushions and crocheted apple protectors, whilst I'm doing my 'Create a fabulous fascinator' out of vintage silk scarves and haberdashery. Fun fun fun...hope to see you there!
