All workshops will take place in our studio.  We have our desks separated for social distancing and have plexi glass screens between you and the student opposite.  As per guidelines, at the moment, we do wear masks during class.

2 April 10am – 4pm – Luna Lapin rabbit £50 includes a copy of the book by Sarah Peel – this is a hand sewn project made from felt.  We’ll take you through construction of the rabbit and her fabulous duffle coat (can be machine sewn).  As this is hand sewing both pieces will not be sewn in a day, but we’ll make sure that you understand how to construct Luna and her garment so that this project can be completed at home.
