GARDEN PARTY! BESPOKE BUNTING

A CREATIVE REUSE WORKSHOP

Nothing shouts SUMMER more than a bright bunting. Party. Wedding. Birthday. Festival. Bunting is happy.

Join our lead sewing tutor, Isabella Hodge, to make your own bespoke bunting to brighten up your summer event. Everyone loves bunting!

You’ll be invited to use fabrics from our collection of suitable donated textiles at MADE’s ReUse Hub. Or you’re welcome to bring your own.

You will learn how to measure, design and construct your bunting. Using one of our modern electric sewing machines, you will be shown simple sewing techniques to make a little ray of summer to take home.

You will complete one length of bunting using our fabrics, up to 3m long. If you need additional fabric and tape to complete your bunting, you can purchase this from the ReUse Hub. You can also arrange extra, untutored time using our machines at £5 per hour.

You don’t need to be an expert stitcher to do this workshop; beginners are welcome.

We recommend you look at Pinterest for inspiration …so many amazing ideas and colours. We searched for Garden Party Bunting.

Suitable for adults.

sewing workshop in 2021ABOUT ISABELLA

I joined the MADE team almost at the beginning and completely by accident. I came in to help set up a window display and stayed. My main creative love is for all things textile, sewing first but also knitting, weaving and hand spinning. I made all my own clothes and home furnishings and ran a fabric shop for home dressmakers in Edinburgh. I also love vintage sewing machines, the iconic old black ones that granny once owned. I have my own collection of these and have refurbished and restored many more. Through my business, Sew Vintage, I make and sell upcycled cashmere accessories and other household items such as cushions, aprons and tote bags, all from upcycled and vintage textiles and sold exclusively at MADE.
