{piece together}

On July 11 piece together will be opening its doors and encouraging visitors to make their own hand made items.  Piece together is a studio, workshop and marketplace where people can come together to make. The inspiration for the studio comes from a time when items were made with a sense of pride and purpose and were not simply another disposable item.

They have just released an enticing program of sewing, crafting and kids club workshops.  A line up of local designers, many whom are BrisStyle members, will be teaching you to create some beautiful jewellery, bags, scarfs, clothes and accessories.

So if you love the designs of Melanie from Kimono Reincarnate, Jess from Epheriell, Stephanie M of Wimcee, Jennine of ladybug markets and Julie from the Mountain Spinnery..... join them and more, and learn to make some handcrafted items or sew some clothes or accessories for yourself or your children.  When you book mention BrisStyle and we will give you 10% off the cost of the workshop.

Piece together workshops are created so that you don't need to do a lot of running around or packing to attend a workshop.  Equipment and machinery is available for your use and additional materials are
packaged up so you can arrive and join in straight away.  The studio consciously stocks local handmade items and uses tried and tested patterns from small businesses.

We are constantly reviewing the schedule of projects and looking for unique items for the marketplace, so if there is something you would like to try your hand at;  if you are interested in running a workshop
or would love to see your handmade or vintage items in the market we would love to hear from you.

Visit the piece together website to register your interest in one of their great workshops! Don't forget to mention BrisStyle for a 10% discount.....
