For our second collaboration with the Great North Museum: Hancock, we are bringing you a family event that will have your little ones decorating a tote bag using African print materials and fabric. This workshop will be guided by Chanttelle Gillies, founder of Lexelina Designs. Lexelina Designs specialises in bespoke garments with an afro-fusion twist, from special occasion clothes to embroidered t-shirts and sweatshirts and artwork.

This Worshop is great fun and will allow children to learn a new skill, be creative by using fabric that are is inspired from the cultures of Africa, beads, needle and threads including sewing machines. This workshop also endeavours on making sewing accessible, safe and enjoyable! The children will be supervised at all times and the sewing machines are all speed controlled so they can take things nice and slowly. Over the course of an hour each child will design and make their own bag which they can take home at the end of the session.
