Went for a workshop on making bags from old clothing,it was with 2 of Studio Sevens artists Kathryn Clarke and Corinne Hockley,they had some good ideas and where most helpful during the session. Kathryn had made several bags to give us inspiration and they were great, using the pockets ,belts and frills from the original garment she designed the new bag. This is a photo of a frilled skirt obtained as were all the garments from a charity shop in the photo above you can see how she has used the frills to make rosettes.
See how easy it is to have pockets in your bag when you take them straight off a man`s suit!
A pillow cover made from the pullover in the photo.
The rest of the bags are the great work of the other students.
This started life as a woollen skirt plus tweed additions.
A jumper and blouse.
These are so cute remind me of Victorian bathing costumes.
