Upcycling & Refashioning Course. Thursday Evenings

January 6 @ 6:30 pm - February 10 @ 8:30 pm

£30.00 – £90.00

A 6 week evening course designed to help you to explore remaking and reusing clothing. You will learn techniques for unpicking, remaking, dismantling and altering clothing to make into (almost) new garments.

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.

Thursday evenings at Todmorden College, 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

£90 including materials as needed. If you pay the £30 deposit to book please pay the balance on the first session of the course. If you wish to spread payments out over a longer period please contact us to arrange. Places are limited to 10.

If you have your own machine we do advise you to bring it along, otherwise we can provide one for a small charge. Everything else can be provided as needed and included in the cost, however if you do have your own scissors, tape measure, chalk, pins etc we do advise you to bring them along as equipment is limited and would need to be shared. Please bring a drink/flask along with you if necessary as there may not be an opportunity to provide hot drinks
