Details

Let’s get serious about sustainable fashion through either experimental design or simply sewing something for yourself. Elevate, revamp and customise your denim jeans into something unique that represents you.

On this unique course you will be learning how to customise and personalise your denim to reflect your own personal style.

Techniques include bleaching, distressing, drawing and painting, patches, patchwork, deconstructing and reconstructing methods.

Bring along a pair of jeans or two and reimagine them into something special and personal!

Illustration, designing, customisation and advanced sewing – whatever is your thing. We are here to promote confident young creatives with open enquiring minds who want to make a change.

What to expect:

We believe in giving substance and sustainability awareness to each sewing project by encouraging open and enquiring creative minds in a structured environment. At the end of the course you will have

Design sheets on fashion research, fabric sustainability awareness, fashion illustrations and design development, expertise in customisation including bleaching, patchwork, deconstruct/ reconstruct technique and hand embroidery!

You will leave with a unique and personalised customised garment!
