Sewing level required: basic knowledge of using  the home sewing machine

You feel that you have nothing to wear? Well, let us show you that you actually do!

Join us on a relaxing evening to learn how to transforming one of those pieces from your wardrobe that lost their charm into a new, exciting design!

This is an open class in which you will bring your own upcycling idea and old clothing to transform. For a good organization of the class, prior to participation email us with a picture of the piece of clothing/pieces you want to use in your project and a short description/rudimentary illustration of your idea (no drawing skills needed, just a doodle to help us understand better what you want to create).

Depending on the complexity of your project and your own pace, more than 4 hours could be needed to complete your project. In this case, you will receive from use guidance to help you finish the project at home or you can feel free to book another session.
