Description

For the first day of Fashion Revolution Week 2018 Lancaster we have invited Stitched Up to host an upcycling workshop for us to Bring Life Back to Your Old Garments!

This is a great chance to learn techniques to alter and repair your well loved clothes.

Repairing and altering clothes is a skill for life, as well as a great way to save money and avoid buying new! In this workshop you’ll learn how to repair and alter clothes the creative way, offering innovative techniques to reinvent tired garments and bring life back to old favourites. Try out visible mending, patching, embroidery and embellishment techniques all using 100% reclaimed materials.

Bring along an item of clothing you’d like to alter, or repair, or both! Sewing machine skills are not essential and beginners are welcome, but if you’ve never sewn before please bring along a simpler project to work on. It might not be possible to completely finish your alteration project during the class, but you’ll go home armed with the knowledge to finish it by yourself.

Maybe you have a jumper with a hole in it that with the magic of patches could turn into a new jumper entirely? A blouse or a shirt that would look nice with an added collar or angel sleeves? Or what about making a normal top into a peplum? A pair of jeans or an old denim jacket that just with a little embroidery added would make it that extra bit extra! Dig into your closets and bring with you what you find. Let's bring the love back!

Tickets are limited so make sure to book yours now (concessions available).

We'll be in the Storey Café.
