Sustainable fashion and textiles is an international movement to minimise the enormous waste and pollution caused world-wide by this huge industry. 

Take your first step and join the ethical revolution!

Have you got a favourite piece of clothing or linen that is:

Too big/too small/ripped/worn in places/out of fashion/or just too good to discard?

Well, this is the workshop for you! We will assess your piece and plan a “remake”. You may have some dreams of your own!


  • Collect up some complimentary “bits and bobs’ like zips/ribbons/lace/fabric/labels/tape, anything
  • Sewing Machine and accessories, extension cord
  • Scissors/Pins & Needles etc
  • Thread to match or compliment your base fabric.
  • Pen and paper to write and make notes
  • Your phone or camera for recording your progress is useful for later.
