Event Details

Get creative with this beautiful little workshop inside our cosy café shrub after hours.

During the workshop, textile artist Jessica Kinnersley will show you how to turn a vintage tin into a beautiful little piece of art featuring personalised messages, vintage ephemera and simple hand embroidery.

Jessica will guide you through laying out and sewing small-scale florals, using vintage ephemera from her stash, to display inside the tin. You can also work into or add some detail to your collage, using some basic hand embroidery stitches.

All materials are provided in small kits, including the tins (tins are usually the size of an old tobacco tin, to give you an idea of scale). Jessica will also bring her boxes of vintage paper goods, linens, trims and buttons to rummage through! Although some knowledge of basic sewing is useful, it is not essential and beginners are very welcome!

Cost £47.40 including materials, glass of wine and nibbles.

Perfect workshop to treat yourself, come with a friend or as a gift for someone special.

Booking essential.
