Today’s Bag Making Class


Another very productive class today, Michaela Smith from One Ginger Tom was with us teaching the principles of bag making. It was a brilliant class where every student was empowered to design and make their own basic bag. The ladies were shown how to make their bags bigger, smaller, fatter or thinner; armed with these tools they then designed, fiddled and diddled  a range of stunning bags of all shapes and sizes. I managed to snap 2 pics of nearly finished bags and I hope more completed ones will find their way into my shop soon to be photographed. See how different they look even though they are the same basic pattern.

Liz was also on our Convergence class a couple of weeks ago and brought in her finished wall hanging. She has really gone to town decorating it with Shishi mirrors and beads, it looks amazing and really twinkles in the light.
