Event description

Description



Please NOTE: If accessing our REMAKE sessions you will ideally know how to thread and do basic stitches CONFIDENTLY, by doing one of the following BEFORE attending this session:

***Attend a beginners sewing class with us or elsewhere


***What are these REMAKE sewing sessions all about?

This is NOT a taught sewing class. (i.e. where everyone makes the same project- pet bed making, or simple top making)

It is a chance to have FREE access our community Sewing studio to make, upcycle, embellish and repair with textiles.

We have:

4-5 sewing machines available to use OR BRING YOUR OWN if you already have one.

ACCESS FREE donated MATERIALS for your upcycling projects.

Thread, needles, pins and other basic equipment will be accessible during the session.

BRING a textile project you need some expert guidance with, or get on with your own project.

** Fabric cutting space is limited so small to medium sized projects preferred **

REPAIR - mend those pesky holes and rips to make the item/s wearable again.

ALTER - take up hems, take clothes in or out to fit better

EMBELLISH and REFASHION - Decorate and change items to feel more fun, more colourful and more like YOU.

MAKE- work on your own sewing projects. We encourage you to use donated fabric, reuse and upcycle wherever possible.

Opening times:

Community Sewing Studio is open on Wednesdays but times alternate week to week 10-12 and 6-8 are our hours where you will have the opportutnity to ask questions of our sewing tutor.

Mornings:
10-12pm- Gain advice on your project from our experienced sewing tutor

Evenings:

6-8pm - Gain advice on your project from our experienced sewing tutor


Please BOOK your slot and let us know what project you are planning before you attend (if you can) so we can prepare appropriately.

Additional haberdashery to complete your project may need to be provided at your own expense so please keep this in mind before attending.

Thank you!
