Upcycled Clothing | Jill Rolfe

4 Sessions | Mondays 13, 20, 27 November & 11 December 2017 | 10am – 15.30pm

Tutor: Jill Rolfe
Venue: Oriel Davies

This new course will up-lift the design of your wardrobe. A `no tacking? course, just free sewing. With an eco aware slant, you will design articles of clothing you thought you would never be able to do. Start collecting garments from boot sales and charity shops to up-cycle.  Students will work from a simple up-cycled bag through to an article of clothing and develop design skills along the way. Regard will be paid to the different types of fabric and their unique qualities. Students are required to work on projects between sessions so will need the use of a machine at home. Spaces are limited to 8. However, additional spaces are available if students can bring their own machine. Please state when booking, if you will be bringing a machine. On completing the course, students may be invited to present their articles for sale to an eco-fashion co-operative called Co-Create.

This course is run by Aberystwyth University's School of Education and Lifelong Learning.
