Sew a leather maxi tote bag

Reviews: Average review: 5 Number of reviews: ( 4) Level: Intermediate Category: , , ,

Do you like the idea of learning to sew while upcycling materials? Would you like to make a multi-purpose bag that will go with you every day?

In this 3h30 workshop, Kathryn will help us make a maxi tote bag, using leather from the circular economy! This durable, practical and elegant bag will follow us on all our urban escapades. We’ll cover the fundamentals of sewing and how the sewing machine works, while learning to sew a rigid material and working with angles and 3D volumes. We’ll also discover the different processes involved in sewing leather by machine, as well as applied pieces.

Each participant will be able to choose between several colors and textures of leather (smooth side or suede side) and personalize their tote bag according to their desires: size, number and shape of pockets, colors of straps…

Skills required: basic sewing skills and experience of using a sewing machine.

The price includes all materials and lots of useful advice.

NB: Workshop time is indicative, and may take longer for some participants. We therefore recommend that you don’t schedule an appointment right afterwards!

J’ai beaucoup aimé les compétences de la formatrice, qualité des équipements et fournitures, atmosphère cool qui fait que même les participants qui n’avaient jamais manipulé une machine à coudre se sentaient à l’aise!

L’animatrice nous a donné beaucoup de trucs pour la couture concernant la machine à coudre et le cuir. Je suis très contente de mon grand tote-bag. L’animatrice était excellente.
