Make do and Mend, Recycle
Feb 27th 10-30-4.30pm
Here at Fabrication we are taking on the credit crunch with the spirit of the Blitz. Don't buy new, learn to alter, repair, customise and revamp your wardrobe.
You will learn to replace buttons, add new collars and cuffs, add trimmings, as appropriate to your garments and requirements. and turn unused garments into new objects. Either use bits and pieces you have found or root through our trim and button box.
This class will not only help you revamp your wardrobe but turn you into a canny bargain shopper. How often have you not bought the £5 sale trousers cos they were too long, or a fab markdown silk frock cos the beads were coming off or the zip was dodgy. After this that won't happen again.
Cost £35+ materials, includes refreshments but not lunch
Please note all these workshops take place in an upstairs room with no lift facility. All classes must be prebooked and paid for prior to the day. Places are ltd to 6 for clothes making classes so we can give you more attention.
If there is a class you want to us to run then let us know and if enough folks also want it then we will try and organise it. If you really want to attend one of our classes but work weekends etc then we may be able to run in an evening if enough people want to
