Patterns for two size / style bags also available for purchase


This work shop is based on creating two sides (A4+ size), suitable for a bag. However, participants may choose the techniques suitable for their own project such as a collar,

Planning and designing to a shape and size using the design elements of line, direction, space, colour and size provide a framework for a pleasing end result.

Textured surfaces result in very different end results.


If you wish to incorporate your creation into a bag, two different size bag patterns are available from Lorraine but only as a participant in the workshop.

' Soft and Stable ' which is excellent as bag re-enforcer and easy to sew is also available in the workshop.

A Kit (approximately $58) is available and strongly recommended as the fabric provided is suitable for each technique and cut to size, ready to use. Your background re-enforced fabric is also provided in the kit.

Colour selection is provided on registration for the workshop.

 Price: $125 for the two days
