Refashioning clothing for a better future- Week 3

This initiative is part of the City of Canning’s Sustainability Community Learning Program 2020 and the workshops are lead by the local fashion upcycler Mariana Kirova, creative designer of Eco Fashion Sewing.

First of its kind, the series is exciting opportunity for creative sewists in Perth WA to learn how to alter at a pro level and keep clothes in circulation (Week 1), but mostly to enrich their skills with creative upcycling techniques on various easy-to-find clothing (Weeks 2-4).

5th NOVEMBER, Week 3: T-shirts To The Catwalk

Since Coco Chanel made knitwear so fashionable, it is gold to learn how to transform those still easy to find and inexpensive cotton T-shirts, a precious natural material sadly getting scarcer as most of new clothing is made out of plastic polyester.

In this session you’ll will learn the essentials about reworking T-shirts, how to make it have the designer look while expressing your personal style, plus other clever ideas how to upcycle and create with this comfortable material.

This workshop will require you to bring T-shirts to make the class project while learning and applying it to make your own design in class, the best way of acquiring new creative hands-on skills.

Booking options: you can secure a place for all workshops at a discounted price OR book workshop/s of your choice separately.

Capacity: Maximum 12 participants per workshop, so be quick at this unique creative opportunity and secure your place TODAY
