Hold on tight! Everyone’s going to so jealous of your new bag. Use it as clutch or for your make-up. Learn how to hand sew your new go-to bag for all the fun you'll be having this summer. You will learn how to cut the fabric and lining using a paper pattern before learning how to stitch it.

Maiden Aunt evenings are a world away from the classes you did at school. You're encouraged to talk to each other, doodle, daydream and even enjoy a drink (no pranks on the teacher though, please). Mistakes are embraced as part of the creative process and there's no such thing as a fail. We're all about creating a social experience so you get extra marks for swapping hints and tips, and telling each other how awesome the things they are making are. We love it when people continue the crafter party on socials and when there's some good chat between the different groups. We curate talented designers to offer you trend led accessories that you can make yourself. This is a brilliant way to spend an evening with friends making something useful, unique and joyful!

We want people to experience the joy of making things even when they don't think of themselves as creative. We love it when people go home and keep making so we offer crafts that are suitable for all levels and that don't require any special skills, tools or materials. You will also be provided with written instructions, templates and a list of our suppliers.

Did you know?

Clutch bags were invented in the 1920s as a way of ensuring that nothing took away from the silhouette of an evening dress. The fancy versions made from jewels and shells are known as "minaudières".

About your host, Maiden Aunt

Maiden Aunt is dedicated to making the mindfulness and delight of craft accessible to all. We curate the best designs allowing you to make trend-led fashion and home accessories that are personal, unique and joyful.

Maiden Aunt is creating a collective experience in person and over social media to share our crafty discoveries as widely as possible. We want to create a positive space for making and socialising.

Each month, we pick one item and craft and work with independent designers to develop workshops in that month that will be suitable for all abilities. If you can’t make it or want to organise your own event, there will also be a corresponding all you need kit. We can then continue the conversation by sharing pictures and stories of our own versions of the make.

You benefit from fresh, creative ideas. Independent designers and businesses benefit from showcasing to customers in a different context.

If you have any questions, please contact us using the ‘contact host’ button on the website page.
