Join us for an open session of sewing, mending and meeting other makers!


We had so many people attend the amazing Maker Day in April who are keen to get together regularly to sew, mend, knit and make together in the shop, that we decided to set up two new open sessions.

Learn the basics of making and improve your creative skills whilst sharing with others. Kemi will hold two sessions, where you will have a chance to practice a variety of techniques. Whether you want to learn something specific or come for general sewing tips, this will be an opportunity to learn hand stitching, use a sewing machine or a hot glue gun, from a professional and founder of Sew London based in Barking.


Kemi is a fashion designer who has lived and worked in the borough for many years. She has set up the Sew London Project which runs sewing classes and a bespoke design service.
