Upcycling Your Clothes
June 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$30.00
Learn how to give used clothing a new life, even if you don’t sew! Upcycling is a great way to change the look of a garment or turn it into something else entirely (and keep it out of a landfill!). This online class will teach you how to turn your ideas into reality and turn some of those unworn garments in your closet into beloved wearables.
We’ll cover some important considerations, such as types of fabric, what to do if the existing garment doesn’t have enough fabric for the design you have in mind, how to repurpose entire pieces (such as sleeves, legs, collars, etc.), and methods you can use to upcycle instead of sewing.
We’ll provide an onscreen presentation, a downloadable class handout (sent via email before class), example ideas and lots of instruction. It will be an interactive session so you can ask questions and get answers!
