In the series of 3 sewing workshops, we have used second hand fabric to create items that aim
at reducing single use plastics. The workshop has step by step led us through essential sewing skills to
create our produce bags, jar cup warmers, cutlery holders and tote bags. We’ve learnt to reuse resources
that already exist around us and with some creativity we can do this – not buying new to have new items!
Anna who joined us at our workshops would like to share this experience with you
I am really happy that I signed up for this workshop. The first day when I arrived I had very minimal skills with the sewing machine. Both of the sessions that I attended allowed me to gain confidence in them. I also felt really proud to create cool things from scratch while upcycling fabrics which will be really useful in my path towards zero waste! Sarah and Clarinda helped in everything we needed, creating along with the rest of the group a friendly and chill environment.
Hoping to create more stuff soon!
We invite you to make your own personalised zero waste kit! Patterns created by our workshop leader
Sarah Bowers will be on our website soon and our sewing machines are available to use. Get involve
and start making. Interested in future workshops? Register your interest here
Our workshops can be FREE with support from Climate Challenge Fund.
Do you know that…
By extending the lifetime of clothing by three months through swapping, mending or up cycling,
we can save 5-10% of carbon, water and waste footprints of each item.
