Get ready for Political Pockets, a hands-on sewing workshop for International Women’s Day 2024, where we’ll stitch our way to empowerment!

Get ready for a fun and creative session at our Political Pockets – sewing workshop. Learn how to sew your own unique political-themed pockets while connecting with fellow women, non-binary folks and allies.
This workshop is a fantastic opportunity to explore the politics of pockets in womenswear, make your clothing more functional and engage in empowering conversations.

Don’t miss out as we make glorious pockets so that we can keep our hands free for more patriarchy-smashing!
