Sew your own reusable sanitary-ware
October 5, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
By popular demand, Tiger Community Enterprise are back at Shop Zero to run 2 sustainable living workshops to make reusable sanitary-ware.
Whether it’s for environmental reasons or to save money, reusable pads are a very achievable project to make for yourself.
We are running two sessions (at 10am and 1.30pm) in the workshop room at the Malt Cross at 16 St James’ St, the home of Shop Zero. This venue is right in the centre of Nottingham, near to bus routes and 2 minutes from the Market Square tram stop. The venue is fully accessible to wheelchairs.
Sanitary-ware is a very personal product and this class is designed for you to feel confident to make your own pads, customised to your body shape and flow.
Toni, who is leading the workshop, will take you through the various fabrics required for each of the layers and what they do. You will receive patterns and instructions for sizes from from petite through to XL. During the class you will choose 2 pad sizes suitable to your requirements and construct your own bespoke samples which you can use to personalise your pads when sewing at home.
All equipment, inlcuding sewing machine, fabrics, materials, patterns and instructions are provided but you can bring your own fabric and sewing machine if you wish. Just let us know you are bringing your own machine when you book.
The cost for the class is £32.(including booking fee). There will be additional supplies available to purchase at the end of the class.
