You will learn how to cut fabric out using a paper pattern, and then be able to tailor it to get a comfortable fit and block out the light. You will then sew the fabric together using basic hand sewing techniques. You will also learn how to stiffen the fabric in order to create nice alert ears for your sleep mask.
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!

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.
You will get everything you need to make this including materials, tools and instructions. You just need to turn up.
