9/7 Bento Box with Melanie Missin-Keating


Saturday 9th July 10-4 pm   £42

Improve your machine embroidery skills and make this lovely box to gift to the special person you know will appreciate it.

We are still trying to maintain a degree of social distancing so are only having 10 students per class. The class still costs £42, to secure your place you can now only pay a deposit and we will collect the remaining £32 on the day.

 Melanie loves using anything to do with flora and fauna in her work. I think it is lovely to make boxes for gifts etc. Bento Boxes originate from Japan, initially as food compartments  but gradually used for floral designs.

You will make one decorated square box in the day but will be able to create many more afterwards.
