My First Bag Making Workshop at Prior Shop
Last weekend I taught my first sewing workshop at Prior Shop in Bristol City Centre. It's funny that after 9 years of making bags it's only now I feel the confidence to teach what I know to others (maybe it had something to do with my Imposter Syndrome who knows!). Anyway, I hope to build up my workshops over the next year and be able to offer a range of classes aimed at different levels of skill and potentially even offer longer courses. I've found it really rewarding to be able to share my skills with others and the social aspect is also very much welcome!
THE SPACE AT PRIOR SHOP
I decided my first workshop would be a beginner bag making class aimed at people who had never used a sewing machine before, or who had little experience. I wanted to focus mainly on the construction of the bag so provided the materials ready cut, so no pattern cutting needed on this one, plus it was important for the participants to be able to complete the bag in the 3 hour time limit.
I began the workshop explaining the various aspects of the sewing machine and then went through how to thread it correctly.
