Sustainable Sewing School: February Half Term
A unique opportunity for children age 8-18 yrs old to participate in upcycling workshop and explore the world of sustainable fashion
Venue: Ocean Studios
workshop and explore the world of sustainable fashion
This two-day course, led by professional upcycling designers Abigail Schaefer from Mukta_un_done and Nina Westwood from Minski in collaboration with Lizzy Evans from Make at 140, aims to foster creativity, environmental consciousness, and hands-on skills.
Sustainable and slow fashion has become one of the most significant movements in the quest for a greener and more earth-friendly manufacturing industry. Upcycling, in particular, stands out as an effective way to create new garments using surplus textiles that have already undergone the manufacturing process. By reusing these materials, designers can produce new looks with minimal environmental impact.
During the Sustainable Sewing School, students will have the opportunity to unleash their imagination and express themselves through the process of designing and creating unique one-of-a-kind garments.
The workshops will cover various sewing techniques and will take participants through the steps required to create a mini collection from old garments, fabrics, and other textiles.
The workshops will commence with mood boarding and exploring different shapes, which will then be developed through draping and basic pattern cutting. As the participants gain a solid foundation in the design process, they will learn sewing techniques tailored to their abilities for garment construction.
The culmination of their efforts will be showcased in a small-scale fashion shoot held at Ocean Studios.
We strongly believe that the Sustainable Sewing School will provide invaluable skills, foster creativity, and instil a sense of environmental responsibility in your child. It is an excellent opportunity for them to engage in a hands-on learning experience and contribute to a greener future.
