Wat je gaat doen
Our sessions are really 'sew' hands on. We make a variety of items, from aprons, to drawstring rucksacks , handbags, skirts, as well as pull on pants. We combine a few different techniques in adorning the fabric, including beads, ripping, hand embroidery and machine stitching, culminating in a bunch of different projects that you may keep - a reminder of a beautiful journey exploring your creativity utilising the timeless craft of sewing and the needle arts. As South Africa has some interesting fabrics unique to the continent and area, we encorporate these as much as possible in our projects. We also repurpose off-cuts and other discarded materials as much as possible. Most of our visitors have never ever used a sewing machine before, so a large component of the 1st 2 hours are spent becoming proficient in the use of our lovely solid and sturdy vintage machines. Liesie is a vintage sewing machine fanatic, and will quide you through how these amazing machines work. It's a bit like driving a vintage Porche or Ferrari though! Sew...Fasten your seatbelts!
I am the owner & founder of The Sew Much Fun Studio- a boutique needle arts atelier , almost 7 years old now. We specialise in bespoke enrichment courses and arts therapy experiences envolving the needle arts and textiles. I love all things sewing and crafts related and of course, the ever evolving landscape of fashion... what we choose to wear! The studio offers all kinds of experiences - from learning the craft of sewing to fashion up-cycling and repurposing events called Free the Frock Fridays , where we do pop up shops & indoor markets of previously loved items and upcycled textile goods
