Ethical fashion upcycle and design

Time to look at your wardrobe and move from fast fashion to unique and personalised design. This course will give you the tools to update your wardrobe. Why look like everyone else? Bring your own stamp to the clothes you wear. In this course, Shauna will provide you with inspiration, skills, and the confidence to embellish, design, and up-cycle a wide variety of clothes. This can be done by hand or machine. So, if you have a machine that you don’t know how to use – bring it along or work meditatively by hand. Over the eight weeks of this course you will look at alterations, thrifting, altering, and flipping clothes, embellishments, painting and dying, turning old clothes into useful items, and creating sustainable textiles ( such as re-useable bags).
