We are very excited to invite you to join Emma Redfern of Hole House for a new workshop for 2024!

NEW bring your own Hole House pattern! Have you previously bought a Hole House pattern but have just been too nervous to start it? Maybe you did give it a go, but lost momentum and need some help getting back into it?  This workshop is designed for anyone who is already on their bag making journey, but for one reason or another has stalled and needs some help and encouragement to get that bag finished. Let us provide you with the space and time to get your head back into the making process, with as much help and advice as you need.  

You can bring any Hole House pattern, or more than one if you want. Because of the range of bags beings made, you will need to provide your own materials but Emma can help with this ahead of the workshop if you need advice. 

Two days uninterrupted sewing, we’ll feed you and provide tea/coffee and cake, Emma will be on hand to help with those tricky bits and explain the techniques involved and then you get to go home with a new bag – if this sounds like fun, this could be the perfect workshop for you! 

Suitable for intermediate sewers:

Because of the nature of this workshop, you should be able to follow a sewing pattern and use your sewing machine confidently. As everyone will be making different bags, this cannot be ‘taught’ in the same way as some of the more ‘beginner friendly’ workshops.  

Included in the cost of your workshop is lunch, tea and coffee throughout the day and afternoon cake.

Emma is also running workshop on the following dates:

2nd & 3rd March – Forager Bag

10th & 11th May – Wendy Bag

28th & 29th June – Sew ANY Hole House Bag

14th & 15th September – Satchel Bag

8th & 9th November – Foldover Purse

  • Hole House

    I design and sew a range of bags and purses in an array of beautiful fabrics and I only use the best I can find. There is no enjoyment for me in mass producing, cutting corners or scrimping on the details … so I don’t.

    I take time to get the fabrics right for each piece, combining tweed with Liberty or vintage barkcloth with a modern cotton, and the attention is always on the detail, those little bits that maybe only you and I would notice. I am a fanatical pattern matcher and pocket obsessive.
