Intro to Bargello Workshop

June 7 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm


For the first time ever, join Nerrisa in the Weaving Shed as she turns her most popular book project ‘The Barbara bag’ into an exciting, beginner friendly workshop. In this session, learn the basics of this vintage stitch and get started on making your very own needlepoint bag just in time for party season!

We’ll start out with the basics of the stitch, a practise sampler to teach you the foundations, before getting started on your final project – a beautiful needlepoint bag perfect for all your essentials.

All materials included.

Suitable for ages 14+. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
