What you'll do
The experience takes 1-2 hours depending on the size of the group and the things you would like to design. We will first tell you about the whole social business and what is the purpose of it. Afterwards, we’ll guide you through the sewing process. During the workshop you’ll be able to do your own products and become a real tailor! You can choose whether you’d like to design a bag or a T-shirt, whichever is better for you. If you want we can discuss others things to be made as well (this has to be done on the spot though). After you learn how to sew, you'll also learn how to stamp any text/logos you wish on the things you made. At the same time, we’ll tell you everything you want to know about the Argentinian culture. Mate tea, coffee and snacks will also be provided. But most importantly, lots of smiles and good mood!
I am the manager of a social family business offering a co-working space for women who love sewing. Here I help women who do not have the inventory to realise themselves while making beautiful clothing for others. My family has been tailors for generations, so we are all really passionate about. For a few years I have been also offering this service for everyone who want to learn the basics of sewing in just a few hours. I can teach you to make eco-friendly bags or T-shirts in no time! At the same time, you’ll experience the local life here.
Snacks for your tea break will be available.
Local Mate will of course be provided. There is no other way without it in Argentina!
All the materials for sewing will be provided to you so you don't need to worry about anything!
Where you'll be
You'll stay in the co-working space of "El Costurero de lyf". There is plenty of things to do in the office, so no need to go anywhere else to have fun!

It's the best activity if you really want to experience local life here. Also you'll be able to help a social cause - all profits go to women who sew local handcrafts in Argentina. Perfect for couples or bigger groups, but also fits solo-travelers who want to meet locals!
