Make something unique for your child at my upcycling workshop!

Learn how to turn your old favourite shirt into a new pair of children’s trousers or a skirt at my upcycling workshop.

You’ll be creating a beautiful unique piece which carries its very own special story.

Upcycling workshop process

Simply bring along one or two old cotton shirts that you feel deserve a a second career in children’s wear. We’ll then find the right pattern, cut and sew your chosen design and finish the new piece by adding pockets, buttons and cork patches.
Two different patterns will be provided, one for a pair of trousers and one for a skirt. We’ll be able to create pieces for kids aged from about 3 months to 4 years – although the largest size you’ll be able to make will of course depend on the shirt you start off with!

You won’t need any prior experience for this upcycling workshop, as we’ll go through the whole process together step by step. Sewing machines, cork fabric for patches and haberdashery will be provided on the day.
Feel free to pop over to my website to check out some more examples of the upcycled trousers and skirts we’ll be making.
The workshop takes place at Urban Makers Pop-up shop at Fount London in Hackney, and if the weather is nice enough we’ll move parts of our wok space to the yard. There’s also a lovely Italian restaurant next door which serves amazing coffee to fuel us for the c. 3 hours that the workshop will take.
Get in touch if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
