WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

MONTH 1

Basic Sewing Alterations

  • Get good practice with the sewing machine, learning all its functions and tricks. You’re welcome to bring your own to learn how to use it.

  • We’ll explore a variety of clothing items to understand how they are constructed and how you can alter them, based on what everyone brings.

  • The focus is on simple but useful techniques: seams, hems, making smaller or bigger, zippers, etc.

MONTH 3

Creative Reconstruction

  • We’ll take apart garments and re-use them for something else. Throughout the course, everyone will be saving all the leftovers, and then make a pile together so everyone can use them. 

  • The grand finale involves creating something entirely new from scratch, using what you’ve learned about disassembling, pattern making, and sewing.

MONTH 2

Upcycling with patterns

  • Learn the basics of pattern making to customise and fit to your unique body and style. 

  • Use your new pattern-making skills to take upcycling to the next level, transforming the shape and fit..
