Rework It // Holiday Club Ages 8-16 [August 2021]

Join us for three days of summer upcycling fun! Over the three days, we’ll take unloved shirts, t-shirts and jeans and turn them into something awesome to wear this summer.

Tues 17th August, 9:30-11:30am
Weds 18th August, 9:30-11:30am
Thurs 19th August, 9:30-11:30am

We will use a variety of techniques during the week, altering the shape of the garments with hand and machine sewing, as well as adding unique customisations wth appliqué, embroidery and simple printmaking.

You’ll work at your own pace and choose whether to focus on one upcycling project all week or make a different one each day.

Some examples of upcycled garments you can create include:

Statement pocket t-shirt/shirt/jeans

Cut and weave t-shirt

Slogan shirt or t-shirt

Turning a shirt into a short sleeve top

Turning a shirt into a dress or skirt

Jeans to shorts or skirt

Jeans to cargo pants

Visibly mended jeans

Patchwork denim top

Or something else entirely of your own imagination!

At the end of the week we’ll have a photoshoot of all your finished items. If your parent/guardian wants to come along and watch this and celebrate your achievements, they are welcome to come along 15 minutes early on the last day.

Skills: Hand and machine sewing, embroidery, appliqué, simple printmaking, garment deconstruction, adding elastic, shortening hems.

Level: Beginner, age [8-16years].

Some experience of using a sewing machine is an advantage but not necessary. If you prefer, you can just use hand sewing techniques for your project too.

Bring: Bring along a shirt, t-shirt and a pair of jeans to upcycle if you have them. Your parent/guardian can buy one of ours on the day for £3 each – card payments only.

All other materials and equipment will be provided.

Bring along a drink and a snack if you’ll need one.
