Our studio artist, Nick, embarked on a new series of workshops encouraging men to sew
Our studio artist, Nick, embarked on a new series of workshops in Autumn 2023 with the aim of encouraging men to explore the art of sewing. Led by our accomplished artist Nicolas Carrillo, these workshops unfolded over several weeks, providing participants with hands-on experience in creating practical items from recycled materials, all under Nick's thoughtful guidance. The workshop showcased a vintage sewing machine capable of handling robust materials such as canvas, vinyl, and webbing.
What happened in these sessions?
By the end of these friendly workshops, participants had acquired the skills to confidently operate a sewing machine, expertly manipulate fabric, create seams and closures, and even develop their own basic patterns or personal projects. These sessions fostered a supportive environment, boosting confidence in sewing and sparking fresh ideas for future projects.
Following the success of the initial run, Nick eagerly initiated a second series of workshops, which continued throughout Autumn 2023.
