We are delighted to welcome Cassandra from Tweedles Handmade to teach us how to make a reusable sandwich wrap and snack bag. I bought a couple of sandwich wraps from Cassandra at a craft fair a couple of years ago, and after almost daily use in my daughters' lunch boxes, they are still looking great, and have saved us hundreds of plastic bags and bits of tin foil.
This relaxed 2-hour workshop will kick off with a brief show-and-tell of some of the fun and simple swaps you can make in your home to reduce your household waste. You’ll then be able to choose from a selection of colourful patterned fabrics before Cassandra takes you though the step-by-step process of sewing your own reusable sandwich wrap and snack bag set.
This workshop is suitable for everyone, including beginner sewers. For the more experienced sewer it will be an opportunity to work with specialist technical fabrics and learn about the world of zero waste.
You will be provided with all the fabrics you need to create your own sandwich wrap and snack bag. Please bring your own sewing machine and replacement needles.
‘Celebrating Autumn’ Workshops
One of the main challenges that our business has faced this year is being able to run workshops with enough people to make them break even. The necessary extra cleaning and social distancing are significant challenges for Where Inspiration Blooms at The Barn. After trialling a week of workshops in July (our Wellbeing Festival) we have decided, that for the near future, to keep the business going we need to concentrate our workshops into bunches of one or two weeks so that we can hold them in a larger venue where we can have up to 12 people in the room.
Our ‘Celebrating Autumn’ Workshops will run from Friday, 11th September until Saturday 26th at Chartridge Lodge Hotel and Conference Centre (next-door to The Barn).
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year, and we want to celebrate its stunning colours and natural changes through our wonderful community of teachers and tutors. After all the stresses of 2020 so far, we hope that in our selection of workshops you will find something that you will really enjoy and that will give you some joy in these uncertain times.
Safety & Security
During these times of social distancing please rest assured that we are taking all the recommended steps to ensure maximum safety. Our indoors Autumn Workshops will be taking place in a very large conference room inside our next-door neighbours main building at Chartridge Lodge Hotel.
The room is huge, has high ceilings, plenty of windows and will allow us to set up tables 2 metres apart from each other. We know the government guidelines have reduced the 2 metre rule but it is so important to us that everyone feels safe and comfortable, especially with our workshops being all about inspiring people to do things to enhance and support their wellbeing. We strongly believe that maintaining the 2-metre distance is the right thing to do. We will also be putting in place many other safety measures.
We will be asking all of our guests to come into the building wearing masks, which they can remove once they are inside the room and we will be providing hand sanitisers on each work station and when you enter the building. A full list of all the bits we are doing will be sent out to you on an email a couple of days before the workshop.
