Come and spend 5 days of practical, hands-on, fun-packed sessions with us! You will learn how to develop your own unique dress sense, become responsible consumers and how to design and make clothes and accessories whilst being mindful of the environment. We are lucky to have the support of leading fashion brands and will experiment with their kindly donated industry waste materials of highest quality. We will dive into the world of mending, altering and thrifting, learn about the life cycle of clothes, become socially conscious influencers and find out about new technologies aimed at reducing the impact of fashion on the environment. Suitable for all levels expect to use the sewing machine, hand-sewing, taking apart garments to create new garments, make trash to treasure with our beautiful waste materials of the highest quality. On successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate and become a ‘Sustainable Fashion Ambassador’!
