Workshop Maxi

197,- p.p.

Accept the challenge and learn to make your own shopper or backpack. We take you step by step and at the end of the day you proudly walk out of the studio with a new experience, a proud feeling and a new bag.

There is room for 3 participants. Unless you book a private workshop. This can be done safely in our studio at a distance of 1.5m.

Read more about the measures we take to offer you a safe workshop here.


Our workshops are reviewed with a:

What will you be doing?​

Model: A shopper/tote or a backpack with zippers
Inside: divider compartment including zip pocket
Size: both models in 2 different sizes. Small (32x28x8) or big (40x31x12)
Straps: we adjust the length to your taste / height

Duration: from 10AM till 5PM with a lunch break of 1 hour.

Note: this model is different from our sak 7. The models have been specially developed for this workshop so that you can also finish the bag in 1 day.

Personal attention is important to us. That is why our groups are a maximum of 3 people. For these workshops it is nice to have some sewing experience. But that is not mandatory if you like a fun challenge.

The price includes material and the use of tools. During the workshop I make coffee or tea + something tasty for you. Buying materials for further crafting at home? That is possible in the atelier.

This workshop takes place in our atelier in Amsterdam-west.

Would you rather start small? Then go for the workshop mini (small shoulder bag of fanny pack in half a day).

The price also included a delicious lunch from the neighbors of De Huiskamer van Rembrandt.

Ps. In the unlikely event that you have a cold or feel the flu (or other symptoms related to covid-19)? Please let Margriet know no later than 24 hours in advance so that we can move the workshop in consultation with you.

Do you want to organize a fun workshop with a group of friends, colleagues or family? Then plan a date with us and you will have the atelier to yourself during a private workshop of your choice. Send us a message for more info.

Very nice workshop with a great result

We had a pleasant day! Everything is explained step by step so that the end result looks beautiful.

Very nice experience to be able to make such a beautiful backpack yourself!

A fun workshop to join. Margriet explained everything clearly. Great machines to work with in a nice “fresh” workshop. You make a bag that you think was bought at the store. Beautiful and professional with beautiful materials and beautifully rescued leather. The studio is easily accessible in Amsterdam at a nice location at the Rembrandtpark.

Marja, Huizen
Super workshop, and can be done very well with 1.5 meter!

Very nice to be able to do something nice with a friend again. No experience on the sewing machine, but was really doable, and I walked out the door with a very cool bag. Worth repeating!
