Upcycling: Clothes customisation



Hands on sewing sessions in small groups so you get lots of individual support with your project. Bring along anything you wish to embellish, alter or jazz up. Our tutors aim to inspire you to discover and develop your own style. We can help you design a simple pattern that suits your particular measurements or complete a project using a commercial pattern. You can explore hand stitching techniques as well as using a sewing machine.. Above all, this is an opportunity to have fun getting creative and producing one of a kind items for you and your loved ones. Some of the most popular items to start with are bunting, throws, cushion covers, curtains and 'A' line wrap skirts, the choice is endless.
