Saturday Upcycling Special!! Upcycle & Refashion your Clothes!
April 23 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree – £30.00
A one day upcycling & refashioning special! You will learn techniques for unpicking, remaking, dismantling and altering clothing to make into (almost) new garments, accessories or homewares.
You will need some basic skills at using a sewing machine, a supply of clothing to cut or or take apart, an unpicker and some creativity. We can provide most tools but bring along whatever you have as tools are limited. We can also provide plenty of ideas and techniques as well as practical information and how to’s!
We will cover techniques as needed but expect to learn a bit about working with denim in particular, and how to unpick garments quickly and easily, you’ll also learn about the construction of garments as it relates a lot to unpicking them. We will also look at altering and restyling garments without dismantling them, to give them a new style or a better fit.
Running 10am til 4pm, with half hour for lunch, on Saturday 23rd April we’ll have plenty of time to get stuck in. Cost is £60 for the day. Please bring your own lunch!
