Create your own scatter cushion using African fabrics with the help of the elves. Learn about local fabrics and craft your own Africa-inspired scatter cushion—which you get to take home with you as a souvenir. No experience is required, as we take you through the basics. Learn how to sew by hand, and by machine, in our magical little studio in Salt River which is located in the heart of Cape Town’s textile district. Discover the area’s historic importance, and how it developed into the cosmopolitan art and design hub it is today. After the workshop, you'll be able to visit an array of nearby surrounding small businesses and factory shop outlets for bargain hunting, or enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants or food kiosks.
I have been involved in the creative industry in Cape Town for the past 15 years. I have worked on major interior decorating projects for both local and international clients and currently run a creative sewing studio situated in Cape Town's textile district. I am passionate about fabrics, using creativity as a positive change agent and believe the world will be a better place if you exercise your creativity.
