Garment Reconstruction Workshop

Provided by:

Event runs from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM


We all have items of clothing sitting in our wardrobes unworn because they don’t fit anymore or they simply need a little love. Whether it’s a cherished vintage item, a back of the wardrobe lurker or an op-shop find that could do with adjusting or needs sprucing up, a few basic sewing skills and some thought will get your old favourites or shopping mistakes ready to be cherished again. This two-day workshop aims to inspire creative thinking about ways to extend the useful life of unloved clothes. Bring along a few garments from your wardrobe that need repair, you aren’t wearing anymore or some op-shop finds. Ideas will be discussed to adapt them and make changes using easy hand and machine sewing. You may like to remake two or three items into one, visibly mend an item or remake it all together. The workshop will be driven by the mending and alteration projects bought along by you. Join the sustainable fashion revolution – we need to buy less, buy better and keep asking questions about the realities behind what we’re purchasing.
