Unworn-Reborn Upcycle Workshop

We all have something in our wardrobe we bought on a wim but never wore or perhaps wore once but it was too expensive to give away!
It may even be something you loved to wear but it no longer fits you and you can’t bare to part with. Don’t leave it cowering in the dark at the back of your wardrobe let it see the light of day again. Bring it along to my workshop and I will help you to cut and sew and recreate it into one or two new pieces so that it may shine once more!
Cost £175:00 per person
Course restricted to one to 3 people
Due to limited machinery and equipment.

Treasured Piece Re-Release

We all have that one item of clothing that is our go to piece, the one that somehow fits us perfectly and feels just right.
Often so much so that we wear it to death, that when the edges are fraying and seams distressed we still can’t bare to part with our somewhat shabby favourite. Why not bring it along to one of my workshops and I will teach you how to trace and draft a pattern from it and guide you to cut and sew a duplicate! Besides your new garment, you will then be able to take your pattern away with you so that you can recreate duplicates as long as you may wish to.
Cost £199 per person.
Maximum 1 to 3x people per course due to limited machinery and equipment.
Course restricted to soft women’s ie: blouse, shirt, top, dress or skirt due to time limitations.
Individuals need to bring along fabric that they would like to use for their duplicate.
All other trims will be provided. Approx quantities needed are: one to one and half metres for a blouse and two to three metres for a skirt or dress.
