Fabric Upcycling Challenge [October 2021]

We get lots of beautiful reclaimed textiles donated to us, but we also end up with a lot of out-dated and unappealing fabrics too. Lots of old curtains in vintage prints that never came back into style, bed sheets and fabrics in various shades of brown or beige. These are, of course, much harder to rehome, but we KNOW there must be a way to make them zing again!

That’s our challenge to you – take an unwanted piece of fabric, and bring it back to life. You’ll have free reign of our scrap fabric, textile paints, embroidery threads, as well as sewing machines and equipment. We’ll be on hand with some examples, tips and ideas, but the rest is up to you!

Weds 27th October, 2pm -4pm

Due to the limited amount of time we have for this workshop, we will be working on a sample piece of fabric up to 50cm x 50cm, but you can take away a larger piece of fabric to work on at home using the techniques you’ve practised in class.

Afterwards, your revamped piece of fabric is yours to keep and use to make whatever you like. We’d love to see your ‘after’ pics so please do send them to us.

After the workshop – if you’re happy to – we’ll showcase all your fabric upcycling ideas on our socials.

Skills: This is up to you, but the kinds of skills we’ll be using on the day might include embroidery, applique, cutwork, painting and simple hand printing techniques.

Level: Aged 8+ and is a great activity for both kids and grown ups. Suitable for beginners

Bring: Everything will be provided, but if you have your own unloved textiles you are very welcome to bring those along to work on. You are also welcome to bring any paints, fabrics or other materials you’d like to use.
