Raffia clutch bag

Plait your own stylish raffia clutch bag in a day

Service Description

Join us for an exciting new one day workshop discovering raffia craft. Raffia is a great material to work with and you are guaranteed a mindful day of switching off and enjoying the calm of crafting. This is a special one-off workshop on Sunday 7th April - don't miss this opportunity! On the workshop you will learn about where raffia comes from, how to dye the raffia (everyone works in natural in the workshop) and how flexible and forgiving it is as a craft material. From the workshop you will make your own clutch bag and there will be options available for you to individually decorate your bag. Complete beginners are welcome, no previous sewing skills are needed. Once you have mastered the plaiting and sewing skills you will see that there are many options for working with raffia, to making beautiful hats or a wide range of bags. There will be samples available for you to see different raffia projects. What to bring: The workshop includes all materials and equipment needed to make your clutch, and a delicious homecooked lunch is included. There will be the opportunity to buy more raffia if you decide to make more bags or other raffia projects and there will also be a discount code for all guests to buy digital patterns for other raffia projects if they wish. About the tutor: Claire has been working with raffia for nearly 30 years, creating hats, bags and home accessories. She is an experienced tutor and teaches at several venues across the south of England, including running residential workshops at West Dean College of Art in Chichester and Marlborough College Summer School. Her enthusiasm for raffia does not seem to be waning and she regularly creates new raffia products...some of which even make it out of the design department (front room), others don't...
