Time: 7 – 8pm
Learn basic hand stitches and transform your old clothes with our beginners Upcycling Workshop, streamed live on Zoom. Taught by Olesya Lane from Slow Fashion Bus, you will be shown how to make a needle book to store your sewing tools in, or give as a handmade gift to a friend or family member.
This session is aimed at beginners, and is great for anyone who hasn’t picked up a needle before, children wanting to learn a new skill, or maybe just as a refresher.
Olesya Lane is the a founder of Slow Fashion Bus, and her main mission is to inspire others to transform their clothing into joyful, unique and durable garments. She teaches how to mend and upcycle clothes. Olesya also creates unique garments from discarded fabrics and clothes and this is her way to share joy with others and promote textile waste reduction. Olesya had her first upcycling project around 30 years ago – she took her dad’s t-shirt chopped it into pieces and made a top for herself. She loved working on it, and little did she know that this will become her passion later in life. Olesya made a decision a few years ago to follow her passion. Now she inspires others to be creative and enjoy this journey too.
