Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Another invite arrives in the post and while you are happy to pin it to your fridge or stand it on your mantel, you can’t help but think about the cost of celebrating your friends nuptials.

Money in a card is standard but maybe you’re cash strapped after so many other previous weddings. The gift voucher has a hint of laziness and a standard homewares item has to be accompanied by a gift receipt. You’d like to give them something from the heart but just don’t know what.

In this workshop*, Zoë is on hand to guide you through making a thoughtful, practical and beautiful wedding gift. A set of 4 unique dining placemats and matching napkins that will be used for entertaining or daily married life.

Not going to a wedding? Make it for yourself or gift it to a friend or loved one. You get to keep the pattern to make over and over again!

FUN FACT: Over 22,000 marriages were registered in 2015 according to the Central Statistics Office and the average age of a bride for the same year was 33!

* A healthy homemade lunch and light refreshments are included and the studio is equipped with sewing machines, irons and ironing boards. Classes are kept to a maximum of 6 for greater attention for each student.

Exact location of 38coLab is still a guarded secret but don't fret as once you register for the workshop, you will be notified of the address a week before the workshop.

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner to Intermediate: A knowledge of how to use a sewing machine is preferred.
