Join us for a full day of artisan products and workshops in the beautiful setting of East Chase Farm, Kenilworth. Browse handmade block printed fabrics direct from India and decide what you will make from the beautiful ranges of mens and womenswear sewing patterns. Sip artisan gin distilled on site at the bar, tuck into a locally-made healthy Buddha bowl or delicious cake and look forward to your workshops. Beginners can start with a simple zippy bag, or try your hand at Indigo dyeing. See the work of talented textile artists and take in the atmosphere as you listen to our featured speakers.
Cloth Atelier is all about honouring the incredible skills of the masters, men and women who make by hand the printed and woven cloth in our collection.
We chose cloth to inspire, and to nourish the talents of those who love to sew, turning the uncut into beautiful garments to be worn in celebration of slow fashion and a need to connect through our hands with something more.
Sew Different are thrilled to be launching their new range of sewing patterns – PINK CITY – an exciting range of contemporary sewing patterns for women inspired by Laura’s recent trip to India.
