Make your Zero Waste T or Skirt with us!

On Sunday 20th November we’ll have a great hands-on workshop suitable for all experience levels, using scrap and surplus materials to make a fantastic t shirt or skirt which uses every last bit of fabric!

Zero waste is a simple, economical and sustainable way to make the clothes you need and make the most of fabrics. We’ll learn all about different fabric types, sewing with stretch, patching together pieces and using basically square shapes to make wearable and great looking clothes.

Refashion is coming to Sandwell!
