Handmade with Hesketh Emporium

Handmade was created for community – a place where community can become a family. 

We aim to teach sewing and craft skills, socialise and reduce isolation. My heart is to make a place where people can have fun, learn new skills and relax and get to know and understand one another better. 

I am passionate about passing on my love of sewing and making to others, and to use these skills to make useful creations that are used and gifted to others.

So, when is Handmade?

Handmade is a monthly and bi-monthly social sewing and craft workshop for the community. 

Workshops are held at The Edge in Wigan. 

The Edge, Riveredge, Wigan, WN3 5AB. 

2nd Friday monthly. 10.00am – 1pm

2nd Saturday monthly. 10.00am – 1pm

Excellent on site parking and wheelchair friendly too. Just bring yourself and join in. We provide all the materials and the equipment you will need on the day.

Community & Sewing

Learning a new skill and building a community while we do it is what Handmade is all about. We learn to sew together and make special items every time we gather. We come together to celebrate what each of us can achieve and build relationships while we do it.
