Re-Fashion Workshop with Naomi Prowse

Rescue, Re-fashion, and Re-use

Date: Jul 20 – Jul 27Space: Workshop

Join fashion and textiles expert Naomi Prowse for a ‘Re-Fashion Workshop’, on Saturday 27 July to coincide with her exhibition; ‘Metamorphize; The Art of Altered Couture’.

The aim of this workshop is to Rescue, Re-fashion, and Re-use… and have fun doing it!

You will learn how to take an item of clothing and give it new life and individuality by remaking a Jacket, Coat, or perhaps a Woollen piece. You will use this as your base and work to remodel it using various versatile techniques that will be geared toward your individual skill set, carefully guided by Naomi.

You will need some sewing experience to get the best out of this workshop – basic knowledge of how to use a sewing machine and hand sewing skills will help.
