Make your own bunting for special occasions this summer!

Summer bunting can be as unique as you are, design and make your own bunting to fit your summer gatherings or a special occasion.

Great for up-cycling and making use of pre-loved garments. Your bunting can be personalised using applique.

This course is suitable for all abilities. We have some fabrics and threads available for you to use but the patterns and colours may not be to your liking, so please bring with you any fabrics you wish to use.
