Upcycling, Refashion & Redesign Workshop

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 use the sewing machine by transforming one of those pieces from your wardrobe that lost their charm into a new exciting design! Every month we want to offer a new redesign project, so that you can refresh your style by using what you already have.

This month: we turn an old shirt into a fashionable puff sleeve blouse.

You don’t need sewing experience for this class – just curiosity, an interest in fashion & sustainability and an old shirt!

YOU WILL LEARN

  • A quick set of sewing machine notions to help you create this project;
  • The measurements, cutting and seam opening techniques you will need in all your sewing & upcycling projects;
  • How to create elastic closings;
  • How to finish the bottom edge of a piece (also knows as “hem”);
  • How to make a belt;
  • Many others things you will discover in the process.

YOU WILL TAKE HOME

  • A simple knowledge of using the sewing machine;
  • Useful sewing techniques you need for continuing to upcycle at home;
  • Your very first upcycled creation – that no one will be able to tell it was upcycled :).

WHEN

The class consists of one 4 hours session that can be taken on a Monday evening. Here you can find the available dates & times.

HOW MUCH

65€/ 4 hours (trims, tools and snacks are included).

Each class has a clear step-by-step structure and a number of maximum 3 participants, in order to be able to spend individual time with each participant and have a complete understanding of the sewing process.

Join our mission by bringing one unused shirt – the bigger the better. If you don’t have one, in our atelier you will also find some second hand shirts that you can purchase for an extra 5 EUR.
