* AFTERNOON CLASS * Refresh your Wardrobe

Date: 20 May 2018 14:30 to 17:30
This class offers an opportunity to go through your wardrobe and drawers and find items that you might not be wearing because a fixing is broken, or a hem needs lifting, perhaps your body shape has changed or you've bought a vintage item or picked up a charity shop fnd that needs to be modified or maybe something just needs to be revamped and embellished to give it a new lease of life!

During the session Barley Massey will provide tailored support and advise on ways to repair, alter or revamp some of your own clothes or second hand finds. You should be able to complete 1 - 3 garments, but you are welcome to bring in additional garments to get advice on.

Basic sewing skills (hand and machine) required to make the most of the session.
If you are new to sewing and don't feel ready to embark on working on garments directly, we recommend booking in for the whole day and participating in the morning session "Introduction to garment repairs & alterations"

The types of projects you could undertake during the session:

- Re tailor items to get a better fit
- Reduce or extend the length of a garment
- Patch or darn holes in clothes & woollens
- Replace a broken zip
- Refashion a dated item
- Embellish with applique, embroidery, lace, braiding etc
- Give a garment a creative make over or upcycle into a whole new garment or accesory.

TIME: 2.30 - 5.30pm

PRICE: £35 or £60 when booking for the whole day (Introduction to garment alterations - Lunch Break - Refresh your Wardrobe) Includes additional materials and refreshments.
