Event description

Description

This class focusses on practical and creative ways to repair and alter your clothes using a sewing machine. It has been developed for those fairly new to using a sewing machine and is a good foundation class before working directly on your own clothing, which takes place in afternoon class 'Refresh your Wardrobe'.

Basic sewing skills advised. If you have never used a sewing machine before, we recommend attending our 'Beginners Sewing 1' - introduction to using a sewing machine class.

The class will consist of a series of hands on excersises and demonstrations by Barley, giving you the basic practical understanding in how to tackle simple sewing alterations, repairs and 'upcycling'. There will also be a collection of transformed garments to inspire and inform.

The session is taught by 'Fabrications' Barley Massey who will share a variety of techniques, tips and tricks she picked up during her 15 years of working freelance in wardrobe for Film and TV and through her own textile upcycling practise of over 20 years.


On completion of the class participants will confidently be able to:

- Prepare a garment for modifying from trying on, measuring, pinning and best approach for sewing

- Understand how to take seams in or out

- Know how to lift or extend a hem.

- Apply darts, pleats, gathering and elasticating to reduce volume and shape to your body

- How to create 'extra volume' if a garment is too tight or not fitting correctly

- Look at old clothes in a whole new way!


All materials provided, and use of 'Brother' sewing machines, scissors etc.


Please Note: The workshop will take place in the Fabrications studio (which is downstairs from the shop via 12 steps)
