An eco bag has so many uses –a library book bag, a shopping bag, or a beach bag - how you use yours is up to you! The best part about this workshop is that you can design and learn how to sew your own to suit your style.

What makes it an eco bag? You can use it again and again, which reduces the number of single-use plastic bags. And when designing your bag, you’ll have access to a range of eco-friendly fabrics from sustainable-sourcing suppliers.

This hands-on class is a brilliant introduction to sewing, and will mean you have something you can use every day!

Our two and a half hour eco bag workshop includes all fabrics, tools and materials required to complete your eco bag and take it home. This includes ready-to-use sewing machines.

Of course, you are very welcome to bring your own working sewing machine if you wish to practice with your own and gain new skills on a machine you are familiar with.

Note: We run workshops for small groups of four to five participants to ensure the right balance of personal attention and guidance throughout.

Hi, I’m Galina! I’m excited to teach people how to sew – from young children learning to sew while at school, through to those who want to sew professionally, and those who want to sew as a hobby. I’m happy to teach anyone at any skill level.

Most importantly, I want to make it simple for people to learn to sew and gain new sewing skills. I do this by encouraging new sewers to start on small and simple items before progressing to larger projects. That’s why most of my introductory courses and courses for kids start with things like tote bags and pillowcases.

I want people to feel happy and confident when they sew, and I’m pleased to say that has been the experience of each of my course and workshop participants so far! I run courses and workshops for small groups, which ensures that everyone can be given attention and assistance as they learn.

My workshops and courses are designed to walk participants through the basics and then offer increasingly challenging projects so that individuals develop new skills at their own place.

I offer a professional learning environment with all of the equipment and materials new sewers will need to learn and complete initial projects. I can also offer guidance and advice to people looking to purchase their first sewing machine or other equipment.
