With the use of a sewing machine, embroidery and a press for pressing foils, we will create puttees that will fit to your style and taste. All materials will be provided for at the workshop; however, if you want your puttee to be made from a special fabric, that’s fine too, just bring it along.

No previous knowledge or skills are necessary.

Application and further information:
The workshop is intended for all generations. Due to the limited number of applicants, you will need to apply in advance. Participation fee: 5 Eur. To be paid on arrival.

With the workshop, we will be a part of the Cycling Festival 2013, which will take place in Ljubljana between May 24th and 26th.
