Make your own produce bags

What’s it all about? 

One of the simplest ways to reduce our impact on the environment is to swap out single-use plastics with alternatives that are friendlier for the world we live in. Every reusable bag helps because an average plastic bag is used for a mere 12 minutes and takes 100s years to break down.

Come along and learn how you can make reusable produce bags out of reclaimed material.  This hands-on session will cover selecting the right fabric, sewing single and French seams and how to insert a ribbon/cord tie, plus every step in between, guiding you in making yourself two styles of bag. 

What will we cover?

The workshop is suitable for both beginners and more experienced stitchers. No prior sewing skills are required. We will begin with some sewing basics, learn running stitch and French seams and be shown how to put together your bag. Take away the skills to make more and eliminate your need to use single use plastic produce bags ever again.  You will be provided with all materials required.
