You will learn new skills, access to knowledge on design generation from customisation and you will be taught the key skill of how to use a sewing machine. You will discover the possibilities of design by bringing in one or more pieces of no longer used clothing. We will cut, sew, and recycle discarded garments into fun, sustainable fashion. During the course you will be encouraged to be as creative as you wish. Your final piece will be a customised garment or accessory. You will have use of the domestic sewing machines, over lockers understanding the fundamentals of extending life cycles of products is a conscientious way to engage within the fashion arena. This course will be delivered in English.
