Adult Craft Workshop: VE DAY 75th Anniversary Celebration: Make Do and Mend Scrappy Patchwork
During WW2, patchwork was a necessity to use up every scrap of fabric as new fabric was hard to get. Today it is still relevant as using up every scrap of fabric available will ultimately help us save the world's already stretched resources. We will work on a simple but addictive patchwork technique which will allow you to mend cloths, make bags and beautiful things for your home. This workshop requires no previous experience.
