The workshop will take place in our workshop space just around the corner from Broadway Market. It's about 15 minutes walk from Bethnal Green tube station, 10 minutes from London Fields and Cambridge Heath overground stations.
Make your own matching set of gorgeous lingerie in this class, using our own Wren Bra pattern and get the kit to make one of the brief patterns to take away with you. The Wren Bra is a triangle style, soft cup bra with a crossover front. Super comfortable with good support, this bra will convert you out of underwires for life! The size range is 26A-42JJ and cup sizes G+ include an extra front panel for more support. You'll be able to choose from either our High Waist, Hipster or Thong pattern to make your matching briefs from.
