Upcycling Course – Make a Skirt from Men’s Ties
May 4 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm£25 – £60
WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING BOOKINGS FOR THIS COURSE. THE NEXT ONE WILL RUN IN THE AUTUMN. Please keep an eye on the website or Facebook page for the details & listing.
We’ve been making and selling these skirts at the workshop for a few years, and occasionally, very occasionally, we offer you the chance to come in and make one of your own. This is one of those times!!
This course is suitable for those with some experience, but you don’t need to be virtually a professional. You will need to be able to sew a seam and fit a zip (we do offer courses on both of these things!!) but otherwise we’ll talk you through everything. We can provide materials, but we do advise you to bring some of your own if you can, as we are limited. You will need about 25 – 30 ties (we do have lots of these but mostly blue…..) just bring what you can if you have any, and you will also need the waistband from a pair of jeans. We can also provide waistbands but it’s a random assortment and you’d be best of bringing a pair that fit you and we’ll show you how to take the waistband off. Save the rest of the jeans for one of our other upcycling courses……
We will show you everything to make one of our eye catching and unique tie skirts, you’ll be the talk of the town!!
The course runs from 10.30-5pm, with half an hour for lunch and costs £60 including some materials.
Please just pay a £25 deposit to book and pay the balance on the day. Look at the ‘deposit’ tickets to see how many places are left. Please ignore if the full price ticket says sold out, places are determined by the deposits paid.
