About the Event
During this two hour workshop you will be shown how to turn a vintage tin into a beautiful little piece of art, featuring personalised messages and an individual design.
You will be guided through laying out and sewing small-scale florals, using vintage ephemera from Jessica’s stash, to display inside the tin. You can also work into or add some detail to your collage, using some basic hand embroidery stitches.
All materials are provided in small kits, including the tins (tins are usually the size of an old tobacco tin, to give you an idea of scale). Jessica will also bring her boxes of vintage paper goods, linens, trims and buttons to rummage through!
Although some knowledge of basic sewing is useful, it is not essential and beginners are very welcome!
You will also be treated to a glass of wine and nibbles during the session with the option to buy more from the cafe.
Places are limited and booking essential. A perfect workshop to treat yourself, come with a friend or as a gift for someone special.
