Tuesday 19 July, 10am- 12:30pm, Craft Opportunities: Learn to sew: cutlery roll

Come along and learn how to sew a cutlery roll with Lily Duval in a workshop held at our Matatiki Toi Ora Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the former Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

This workshop is free/low-cost for Community Service Card holders, though donations are appreciated. The standard workshop price of $66 applies for those without cards. Please select the appropriate option at the bottom of the page. 

Join Lily Duval to make your own cutlery roll so you always have a spoon, fork, chopsticks, and napkin on hand for takeaways and picnics. Fill the roll with our second-hand cutlery or your own hand-carved wooden spoons or chopsticks.

This workshop is suitable for total beginners, and those that would like a refresh of their skills. Lily teaches in a way that makes sewing approachable. Perfection is not the goal in these workshops, instead you will learn resourceful skills and strategies that can be applied to any sewing project. You will learn how to sew a straight line, finish a hem, create a tie, and more.

Off-cut and recycled material, and second-hand metal cutlery will be available for purchase at a low cost on the day, but you are also encouraged to resourcefully source your own fabric and cutlery if you can. Natural fibres like cotton or linen work best.

Please feel free to bring your own electric machine to work on. Just add a note to your order to let us know that you plan to BYO.
