Remake, redesign & repair creative craft textile workshop 2017

Creative remaking workshops

Come and learn about an exciting new fashion trend and walk away with a revived, reinvented and reinvigorated wardrobe!  Our creative material workshops specialise in re-using stunning neckties in an amazing range of projects (other materials are available too). We are all about re-using, re-making, redesigning and making do with what we already have, or you are welcome to bring your own chosen material. Our aim is to help the environment and save you money!

Whether you are a total beginner or sewing is already a long term passion, this class caters for all abilities. Our workshops enable students to learn at their own pace; you can come with your own ideas or be inspired by our expert creative necktie upcyclers. You can make something using a sewing machine, or a hand sewn project, alternatively there are some ‘no sew’ ideas too. Crafts range from beautiful hair clips, phone covers, handbags and bunting to something a little more complex such as dresses and waistcoats – made out of neckties,  examples can be seen here. If you have got a sewing machine bring it along, if you haven’t got one you can use ours free of charge: just let us know on booking. Ideas for hand sewn and no sew projects also available.
