What you will do
2 hour workshop
A handy pouch for many occasions! It will be a great workshop for learning how to put in a zip if you've never tried before. You can decide what kind of shape you want your pouch to be, create a make up bag, purse or Ipad case, we'll show you how to line the bag, and you can even add an extra pompom or tassel if you have time left over. You'll learn versatile skills that can transfer to many other projects. If you are more of an experienced sewer to you can add a lining and decorations to your pouch. It could be the perfect gift for a loved one or for yourself!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Make Mee Studio
Make Mee Studio is run by Tracey & Jaime. Two enthusiastic lifelong sewers (both sewing since they were 5 years old!) They love sharing their making skills with others, and have over 10 years of combined teaching experience working with adults and children. They offer sewing lessons, parties, alterations, makes and commissions in their Brockley, South East London based garden studio and are also available for external school and community projects.
Tracey is a very experienced seamstress who has been working in the business for over 18 years, she started as a costume assistant working for Grenada and the BBC going on to run her own bespoke label and then she began teaching 6 years ago and fell in love. She one of the most precise sewers you'll ever meet and always has a handy hint or trick up her sleeve. She loves keeping the studio neat, tidy and organised, everything has a place!
Jaime primarily studied Textile Design gaining a Masters from Chelsea College of Art. Her passion lies in sustainable fashion and textiles, she began teaching as an antidote to the endless cycle of fast fashion. Teaching people how to make and sew and fix and mend themselves can have a huge impact on how they consume and how they feel about their clothing. She is a self-taught dressmaker and loves encouraging people to make things unique, she's a magpie for anything, velvet, fluffy or sparkly and is terrible at keeping to Tracey's organised system!
If you have any questions, please contact Tracey & Jaime using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
We have a selection of fabrics and trims in the studio which you can purchase for a donation towards our tea and cake fund. If you would like to bring your own fabric you just make sure it is big enough for the bag you want to make. A medium weight woven is ideal, this workshop will NOT work in stretch fabric. Feel free to get in touch before the class to discuss fabric choices. We have a well-equipped studio in leafy Brockley, South East London with everything you need for dressmaking. A tranquil space at the bottom of our garden! If you would like to practice sewing on your own machine please feel free to bring it along.
All students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
