What Is The Course About?
The aim of this course is to reuse jeans in a creative way. This course is supported by the Love Your Clothes programme. and aims to work towards reducing the carbon footprint of fast fashion.
For The Session/s You Will Need:
Jeans to be repurposed, multiple pairs could add contrast of colour and texture. Matching thread and a basic sewing kit (small scissors, unpicker, hand sewing needles). There may be other notions needed depending on the projects chosen, for example zips or buttons.
Additional Costs And/Or Resources:
Thread Trims/buttons e.g bias binding, buttons, sequins, motifs PLEASE NOTE: Any additional costs that arise for resources needed will be paid for by the learner, including scissors. We do provide some basic resources ie sewing machines, thread, bobbin cases, pins, however we find that most learners prefer to have their own supply of these to suit the project they are working on.
