Do you like unique fashion items? Are you trying to steer clear of fast fashion brands and opt for more sustainable options?  If this sounds like you, come and join Isabell Buenz for a masterclass in designing and making your own unique  book bag. 


In this 5-hour workshop you will transform a hardback book into a one-off clutch bag. The results will be unique and can be personalised by selecting a book that has special meaning to you, along with the use of special fabrics and embellishments. You will learn to design your bag, adding your individual touches and assemble all parts into a clutch bag.


The workshop is for anybody who wants to have some fun making a personalised book bag whilealso learning new skills and re-using unwanted or second-hand materials.



Participants should bring:

- a second-hand hardback book they would like to transform

- Card (from cereal packs)

- Fabric remnants for lining of books (ideally cotton or polycotton)


In addition, the following are optional: any embellishments, such as ribbons and threads, buttons, sequins. We have a selection of books and vintage papers that you are welcome to use free of charge if you don't have anything suitable. 


Tea, coffee and cake is also provided!
