Sewing for Christmas - Sustainable Wrapping Workshop

Sustainable Wrapping Workshop

It’s estimated that around 50,000 trees are chopped down to make enough Christmas wrapping paper annually. With our ability to sew, we can reduce wrapping paper waste by creating wrapping alternatives that are reusable. 

Let’s make reusable wrapping together in a 2-hour workshop and get inspired for more eco-friendly gift giving season!

Participant can choose what sustainable wrapping they want to make in the class: tote bag, zipper pouch or drawstring bag. 

Material list: 

  • Your sewing machine
  • 1.5m - 2m of woven cotton fabric
  • Thread to match your fabric.
  • Zipper (for zipper pouch)
  • Strings/ ribbons for drawstring pouch. 2m - 2.5m of any string, ribbon or tie will be work (even upcycled shoe laces) the length depends on size of the pouch, which is customisable. There are two strings in one pouch, each need to be longer that circumference of the pouch. 2-2.5m.

We have a limited amount of sewing machines on site so if you don't have a sewing machine please let us know by calling 9482 1189.
