In this live interactive course you will learn how to up-cycle scrap fabric or old clothes to make ornaments and useful knickknacks or gifts. You will be introduced to sewing techniques and creative solutions for scrap fabric or old clothes. 

You will be making a series of small sewing projects, alongside your tutor.  Each project has a detailed material list available on TEAMS for you to prepare ready for the session and a worksheet for you if you want to make it again.

 You will learn timeless skills to turn your unwanted scraps into something special and learn to love your rubbish! 

How will I learn?

Your Tutor will give you regular feedback during the lesson, you will be able to ask questions during the lessons and use the written chats through the TEAMS software which is accessible through the college website.
