Sewing summer pants 

The approaching summer is the perfect opportunity to freshen up your wardrobe. If your closet has no wide, comfortable pants, perhaps you’d like to try and make them yourself? Join our workshops dedicated to sewing simple women’s pants, perfect for the summer.  This workshop is addressed both to those who want to begin their adventure with sewing and those who already sew. The participants who have never used a sewing machine before, will be given a crash course beforehand. We provide all necessary materials and fabrics, but, if you want, you are welcome to bring your own.

When: 11.05.2019, 10.00-14.00 and 15.00-19.00
Where: Workshops of Culture in Lublin, Grodzka 7 – workshop room or patio if the weather is nice.
Registration: Please register using our online form. The number of places is limited. The workshop is free. This workshop is for adults. Registration begins on 24 April 2019 at 11.00

T-shirts –  a sewing workshop for men

Does a good-quality white T-shirt sound trivial? Maybe so, but anyone who has looked for one in stores knows that finding it is not as easy as it may seem.
Join us for a sewing workshop for men. No previous sewing experience is needed. We will begin the class with a short course on using sewing machines. After a four-hour crash course, you will see that making the perfect T-shirt is easier than you may have thought.  On site, you will find a pattern in four basic sizes: S, M, L and XL. Our work will be based on a deconstructed T-shirt with a raglan sleeve – modern, loose and comfortable cut. The fun thing is that one T-shirt can be made of just two pieces of fabric. But what happens to the project is up to you – how you finish it, how many additional cuts you make whether you add a pocket or extra colour.  We provide all necessary materials.

When:  12.05.2019, 10.00-14.00 and 15.00-19.00
Where: Workshops of Culture in Lublin, Grodzka 7, exhibition room, 2nd floor.
Registration: Please register using our online form. The number of places for the workshop is limited. The workshop is free. The workshop is for adults. Registration begins on 24 April 2019 at 11.00

Flower meadows

The workshop is addressed to people who want to learn how to start flower meadows. During several consecutive meetings in the experimental field made available by ROD “Nasza Zdobycz”, you will be able to experiment with different meadow mixes. The participants will learn where to find appropriate seeds and how to transform a neglected land into a valuable meadow. The workshops are intended for people interested in meeting up a few times during the year and those who can patiently wait for results. The workshops will go through all stages of starting meadows, from preparing the uncultivated land, through sowing seeds, observation and cutting the meadow using a traditional scythe. 

When: 16.05.2019, 17.30 (first gathering)
