Date and Time

With the speed of the current fashion industry and ever-changing trends creating a massive waste issue, upcycling is one of the most sustainable ways to work when creating new garments. Although upcycling has been used for hundreds of years when producing new items, due to the loss of skill and the popular desire for consumption, it is a lost way of working when developing new clothes. However, over the past few years more and more design practitioners have been using this technique.

Within this workshop you will be given the opportunity, and shown how you develop your very own panelled, oversized and cropped jumper using a MUKTA pattern, and surplus clothing as your fabric. Finishing skills, such as attaching collars, cuffs and using different machine stitches to create seams will also be learned over the two days.

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
