Make Your Own Reusable Food Shopping Bags, Saturday 28th November 2020

Combine sewing and sustainability in this brand new Reusable Shopping Bag making workshop.

If you’re trying to cut plastic from your life, this workshop is for you! No more flimsy single-use plastic grocery bags; in this 3-hour workshop you will learn to make different sized drawstring bags for all your dried food needs.

Using a fabric of your choice, you will be shown how to construct bags of different sizes for different shopping items.

All materials, tools and equipment are provided but if you have any specific fabric you’d like to use for your bags, please do bring this along with you, otherwise we will have plenty of different designs for you to choose from!

After the class a handout will also be emailed to you so that you can keep making reusable bags at home with confidence. Keep for yourself or give as a thoughtful waste-free and plastic-free gift, these make especially good stocking fillers!

This workshop will be taking place at the Edinburgh Remakery, 127 Leith Walk EH6 5JQ. We will be using our newly refurbished workshop space which allows for easy social distancing, whilst still creating a comfortable environment for this fun creative session.

More details of the measures we are taking to ensure your health, safety and comfort during your time with us will be emailed out to confirmed attendees the week before the workshop start date.
