Learn to sew a lavender pouch with Circular Saturdays

25 March 2023
11:00 am
1:00 pm

Join the O N C A team for this fun and relaxed workshop where you will learn how to create a lavender pouch from reused or recycled fabric.

In this session you will be introduced to using sewing machine techniques to create your own design to take away. You don’t need any previous sewing experience or know how to use a sewing machine as this is what we’ll be learning together.

Please bring:

  • Some fabric that you would like to use to create your Lavender pouch – this might be an old top, bed sheets or any recycled fabric. You will need to be able to cut out a 20cm x 20 cm square from your fabric. Please avoid bringing stretchy fabric or woollen jumpers which will unravel when you cut into – these are difficult to sew with!


Circular Saturdays is a series of free-to-attend repair, reuse and upcycling workshops for Brighton & Hove residents. Events form part of the ‘BLUEPRINT to a Circular Economy’ project and are funded by the EU Interreg programme. This wider project provides practical solutions for designing out waste and pollution by reusing, repairing and recycling existing resources.

The events are run by local organisations and individuals who have a special interest in the circular economy. Workshops cover a range of subjects, including mending clothes using hand sew techniques, learning how to maintain and fix your bike and the skills involved in the restoration of old wooden furniture.

Circular Saturdays are free-to-attend workshop-style events and are taking place in central Brighton venues between October 2022 and March 2023.


Age range: Suitable for adults aged 16+
