About the Course
Have great fun and be inspired, learning new skills and re-using unwanted stuff. Are you interested in how you can turn a shirt that's too small into a cushion/ soft toy/? or a ripped up pair of jeans into a handbag?
My upcycling workshops introduce you to fantastic ways to transform unwanted clothes, curtains or any fabric item into something to cherish, give as a gift or to sell. A great way to spend time with a group of friends and create new ideas- all from things you used to throw in the bin or give away. No previous sewing experience is necessary as you will be taught everything you need to know. Bring along your old clothes and make them useful again.
Daytime courses starting Monday daytime from beginning June 2018 - weekend courses available on request. Small group sessions in a safe, welcoming home environment.

Wonderful informative evening with refreshments and giggles. Lots of choice on what to make, then step by step guidance.

An enjoyable and girlie evening in a small group lead by the lovely Ange who shares her time and experience so conscientiously between a complete beginner, an improver and a "I need guidance" sewer. A relaxing, rewarding 2 hours being guided through the stages of making your very own tote bag, teddy bear or sewing "wot not" that will ultimately lead to greater things. No previous skill needed. Definitely worth a few evenings learning something new at the same time as having valuable "me" time. Love it.
