Upcycling is all the rage right now. It’s an eco-trend all about creating your own unique style from cast-offs, and while you’re at it you can have fun and be inspired by the myriad ways of re-using unwanted stuff. During this course we will:

-       Turn your unloved denim trousers or skirt into a stylish bag.
-       Learn how to personalise a baby grow or an item of choice with a beautiful applique design - Appliquéis a decorative ornamental needlework in which fabric shapes are stitched together. 
-       Learn the art of free motion or freehand machine embroidery, using coloured threads to create stunning textiles and learn some simple hand embroidery stitches to complete a piece of Textile Art to be framed or made into a cushion. 

All abilities welcome and all materials provided.
