Personal Craft and Sewing Workshops – makes a perfect gift too!

I love putting together a sewing or a craft workshop just for you! They are sort of a combination between a birthday party and a girls night out. Choose a project and we can start an individual sewing session like parent/kid sewing, girls night out or the Kreativlabor Mini class just for BFF’s. The workshop takes place at Das Kreativlabor in Oberwil.

Cost: 20.- SFR per person/hour (some projects may have an extra supply cost)

Timeframe: Approximately 2-3 hours/session

You get to pick out the project– it can be a longer project that takes several weeks or one that we can finish in one session.

She creates an environment that encourages the love for crafting, creativity and learning.
