We will reuse beautiful offcuts to make bespoke patches. You will also learn classic techniques to fix clothes and make alterations!
1.The world of materials:
We will be using most of our senses to understand numerous types of textiles. We will Introduce different fabric types, their characteristics, uses and other details. Essential to learn how to treat the garment and which tool and technique choose to mend it.
2. Creative Part:
We will make hems, change zips, fitting and also patches from scratch to sew them on your garments. There is no need to have previous experience in sewing, if you are new at this you will probably end with one garment reworked instead of two, but with the skills to make the second one at home!
3. Sewing while chatting and enjoying a tea break:
Overall we will be exploring the amazing world of alterations and how to give them a second chance to shine!
