Teens from 12 - 16 yrs old are invited to learn new and exciting ways to create with textiles and how to upcycle old clothes and accessories with fabric embellishments, printing, embroidery and using machine sewing! We will work through different textile techniques each week, where you will be able to make your own samples and also spend time on designing and making your upcycled piece.
Please bring a sketch or note book, pens & pencils, old clothes or fashion accessories that you would like to upcycle, other materials and resources will be available to you for use to adorn your fashion pieces.
