Brochure Text

This new course will up-lift the design of your wardrobe. A `no tacking? course, just free sewing. With an eco aware slant to the course, you will be designing articles of clothing you thought you would never be able to do. Start collecting garments from boot sales and charity shops to up-cycle. Students will work from a simple up-cycled bag through to an article of clothing and develop design skills along the way. Regard will be paid to the different types of fabric and their unique qualities. Students will be required to work on projects between sessions so will need the use of a machine between sessions. Spaces are limited to 8 but you can bring machines to class if the course is full. Please state if you will be bring your own machine to class when booking. On completion of the course, students may be invited to present their articles for sale to an eco fashion co-operative called Co-Create.
