Come and learn how to make cloth creatures from recycled clothing which you can take home and love.
You will learn the basic template for making a creature and will have access to a varied source of embellishments to make your creature unique to you.
All materials provided but feel free to bring along any materials you may want to include in your creature.
Basic hand sewing is all that is required.
Please note this is not a toy workshop and the creatures made are not suitable for children due to small parts.
