3 hours Class size 1 to 6

label £110 - £150 (Earlybird price of £100 applies if you book into a public session 22+ days ahead; £110 for , £150 for Private Class)

Did you know that most underwear is 36% plastic even if it is made from organic cotton and every time you wash this underwear you release tiny microplastics into the water systems that affect our oceans and water life?

Switch to natural knickers and learn a new skill at the same time at this fun craft workshop in Hackney. During this craft class, you will learn how to create a beautiful pair of Environmentally Regenerative and (dare we say it) sexy knickers. Micro-plastic free and non-toxic underwear is definitely the future and we want you to feel the joy of making it yourself!

Alongside making your knickers you will also get to dye silk using the natural dye method of eco-printing. Simple, effective and no two pieces are the same.

Fill your underwear draw with organic colour and amaze yourself with the beauty of the natural world. In ayurvedic medicine natural dyes are promoted to help your body restore itself. Your skin is the largest organ of your body so what it touches it will absorb. Isn't it time to make that natural?

At the end of this craft class, you will have one pair of pants made and all the parts to make a second pair either at home or another time with access to the sewing machines at Make Town.
