Why do refashioning: [long list, to name a few]

Saves heaps of money on designers clothing; Gets you creative with awesome satisfaction from your own makes; Instead of feeling guilty after ‘shopping therapy’, you could experience an incredible ‘creative therapy’ followed by great sense of satisfaction and achievement; You end up with unique fashion pieces to show off with; Improves skills that benefit for life; Well… could save the planet too, as you utilise what you have rather than create more textile waste.


What you’ll learn:

How you can do it yourself; Mariana will demonstrate how she reworks unwanted fashion pieces by using simple fixes, embellishment, refashioning, increasing size, upcycling and more on clothing.

What to bring:

Bring along some cast offs or clothes you don't wear anymore. Don’t hide those shy tears, worn outs and outdated designs – it's time to bring them in and get inspired to revive them for a new exciting life. You can also bring matching unwanted clothes or materials to discuss combination ideas.

Instead of getting rid of the good quality stuff you already have (and don’t wear), get creative and see what unique pieces you could make.

If you love sewing, it’s time to tackle refashioning!

NOTE: This is only an hour and a half demonstrative workshop and discussion, not a ‘hands-on’ workshop that includes sewing. However, if you bring clothing you don't wear anymore, we can discuss and you'll get back home with great ideas to do it yourself.
