Winter workshops!

Looking for something fun and creative to do on Saturday? Well, Anna and I will be holding our first vintage DIY workshop in the new cabin artspace next door to Bon Marche Pigeonhole, you should come along!

The workshops will be devoted to showing you how to alter, style or renovate your op shop finds into something that will fit you well, doesn't smell like grandma's moth-balls, but is still a classic and genuine vintage piece of clothing! You'll be taught how to always have luck at the op shop and how to have the foresight to turn that size 26 floral muu-muu with a lovely print into a pretty and wearable dress. The workshop will cover basic sewing, op-shopping tips, some knowledge of fashion and textile styles from 1950-1990, and result in a renovated piece of vintage clothing that fits like a dream!

Attendees must bring with them:
- a piece or two of op shop/vintage clothing you've found that needs to be altered/renovated/ styled to be more wearable. Example: huge, long dresses with shoulder pads, maybe, or skirts and blouses with awesome fabric that are just not generally wearable
- a pair of scissors
- a notebook and pen
- a sense of adventure!

Date: Vintage 1 – Saturday August 1st, 2 - 4pm
Vintage 2 – Saturday August 29th, 2 - 4pm
Cost: $20 at the door

There are limited places available so get in quick!

To register, email your contact details to: with VINTAGE WORKSHOP REGISTRATION in the subject line, specifying which date you would like to attend.

See you there!

Love, Hannah x
