What you'll do

You'll be given the warmest welcome as you step into our awesome upcycled world of furniture, textiles and art that is Studio 6:17. Settle in, get comfy and meet the other guests before getting creative in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.

Rain, snow or shine we will be having a good time!

We will guide you step-by-step as you design, paint and stitch your very own hand-made clutch bag. NO SEWING or PAINTING EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

After a little practice you'll be ready to paint the fabric for your bag using fabric paints, textile stamps, fabric pens, screen printing and mark making. Once you’re finished painting, you'll heat set your design, assemble it and machine sew it into a clutch bag. We will just be using a simple straight stitch on the machine, please don't worry, it's easy. You'll be upcycling fabrics that have had a previous incarnation and in doing so you will officially become an upcycler and join the revolution. Brilliant.

This is an uplifting and motivating experience and a great opportunity to learn new skills, relax and get creative at the same time. You'll leave with your very own hand painted upcycled clutch bag and memories to last a lifetime.

Meet your host, Rose

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
Hi, I'm Rose. After 25 years of upcycling experience including decorative art and a textile design business, I met Caroline, a kindred upcycling fanatic. Together we founded Upcycled World, a not-for-profit company dedicated to sharing upcycling skills with our community.
I love to promote conscious consumerism which is my response to our throw away culture. I see waste as a resource and enjoy nothing more than creating beautiful things from rubbish. I'm an environmentalist and an aspiring vegan- I just love cheese!
