Upcycling is a growing trend in the fashion and home industries. Novice tailors can learn the basics of upcycling their wardrobe with a three-hour beginners sewing course (usually £60) or a six-hour beginners dressmaking course (£120). The sewing sessions will cover all the functions of a sewing machine as well as hemming, button holes and zips. In the dressmaking class, guests will learn bow making, customising, zips, hems and multiple sewing techniques. They will also offer an upcycle of the participant’s current wardrobe for the party season.
