TEXTILE UPCYCLING 101 // Bring life back to existing textiles.

Looking to learn fundamental skills to repair and upcycle textiles at home. Look no further. For this course, no prior sewing skills are required, all you need is a hate for landfill and a thirst to bring materials back to life.

BAGS & CREATIVE OUTCOMES: Over the five weeks you won't just learn how to sew and produce a glasses case and a tote bag. We teach you the pattern making, assembly and problem solving so you can design, tailor and iterate designs to your personal preference.

WHO IT'S FOR: This class is for beginner to intermediate sewers. Maybe you remember sewing years ago but want to brush up on your skills, maybe you've never sewn before but you want to bring some of your wardrobe back to life. Either way, we cover the fundamentals of sewing while ensuring there's ample time for creativity and refining skills so you can repair your own garments at home.
