♻️ T-shirts Reworked with Elizabeth Kingston & Jane Milburn | Tuesday 27th of November, 6pm to 8pm

In T-shirts Reworked, join WornOUT creatives Elizabeth Kingston and Jane Milburn to rework disaffected T-shirts into delightful eco products. Using scissors, knots, twists and creativity, we show you how to repurpose t-shirts into neckpieces, bracelets, beanies, headbands, shopping bags and pouches. You will also learn how to make continuous t-shirt yarn to use later for crochet bags, bath mats or twisty rope. BYO T-shirts, if possible.

♻️ Flip Skirts with Elizabeth Kingston & Jane Milburn | Thursday 29th of November, 5pm to 7pm

One way to extend the useful life of existing clothes is to give them a new identity. Join Worn OUT creatives Jane Milburn and Elizabeth Kingston and learn how to flip jumpers into skirts and skirts into dresses. BYO several options and we will achieve what we can within the timeframe. Note that jumpers need to fit over your hips and long full skirts work best.

Create eco accessories with Worn Out 2018 textile artist Donna Morea Thomas.
