Z is for Zebra Workshop Details:

Recently we announced our full line up of workshops:

Over the next few weeks we will tell you a bit more about each workshop and the designers that will be teaching them. 

To Book a place on this worshop click here:  Saturday 2nd July   or   Saturday 9th July
Date: Saturday 2nd July 10.30am to 1.30pm (three hours)  or Saturday 9th July 2.30pm - 5.30pm

Level: All Levels
Teachers: Emma Scullion and Sophie Walker
Price: £15
Maximum Class Size: 12 people

Learn how to make a fabulous African zebra (like Jessica, pictured) using basic stitches and following a simple pattern.
All materials and equipment are provided and included. You will also get a pattern and instructions that can be kept and used again and again (if you have ambitions for a whole herd!).
All of the fee is used to support the kids in Emma’s and Sophie’s  projects in Kampala – the price is based on the costs for taking one child out of the slums for a day out and one good meal/or the price of a pair of school shoes.

About the Emma and Sophie and their project:
Awamu means ‘together’ in Luganda, the main language spoken in Uganda. We chose it as it reflects the name and spirit of both the women’s groups that we are working with.

The big idea: you get lovely hand-made things to enjoy – women in our projects earn a living – children in their care are healthier, happier and can go to school.

Awamu is about showing you the lovely handmade goods that give the makers an income and raises money to help children born with or orphaned by hiv in two of the poorest areas of Kampala, Uganda.

100% of the money raised from the sale of our lovely handmade things is used to provide small education grants so our kids can complete their basic primary education and give their guardians a small fund help them start up a business so they can feed and care for their families.

We love making things and we love using and sharing our passion and skills to make a difference.
