Upcycling, Refashion & Redesign Workshop

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 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 kindly 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) or some reference pictures. If your idea seems possible to complete in less than the 6 hours allocated for the class, we usually suggest bringing two project ideas.

When experimenting with a new design, pattern tests and several adjustments might be needed. For this reason we kindly ask you to bring, if possible an extra piece for testing.

  • The measurements, cutting and seam opening techniques you will need in all your sewing & upcycling projects;
