About the Course

This course is ideal for people that want to be creative with what they already have in their wardrobe, or fabric that has yet to be used, by upcycling it to something new and unique. You may have a dress that could be turned into a skirt, a shirt that could become sleeveless and shorter or have scraps of spare fabric that could be turned into a cushion. You can create something new from investing your time, effort and exploring a creative mind-set.
