Creative session, in textile upcycling, led by Green Designer, Rose Hall of the sustainable fashion label Hamish Mash.
During the workshop you will learn:
about the different parts of the sewing machine
how to thread the machine
how to wind the bobbin
about the use of appropriate threads, needles and textiles
how to sew straight lines, reverse, turn corners, free style and finish seams
You’ll mark out and cut a simple pattern and then sew your tote bag and straps from curtains. Yes, we love upcycling! 🙂 You can then personalise your bag and embellish it with buttons, fabric flowers and shapes, before taking it home and showing off your new skills.
All materials and equipment will be provided, please bring anything special you would like to use. We have machines to share or bring your own if you like. There will be unlimited tea and coffee to keep you going.
