    What you'll learn

    Breathe a new lease of life into your tired, old clothes at this Alterations & Upcycling workshop in Edgware. Designed for those who can already use a sewing machine, this class will teach students how to get the most out of their existing wardrobes.

    In this class

    Bring along an old item of clothing, and leave with a wardrobe to be proud of! This workshop will teach you the basics of clothing alteration and upcycling, all from the comfort of Luchi & Ota's friendly and welcoming boutique. Here are just some of the techniques you will learn in the two-hour session:

    • Covering up and creating new button holes
    • Adjusting waist bands
    • Unpicking and hemming
    • Turning a tear into a design using different patch methods

    Please note, alongside your item of clothing, you will also need a fabric marking pencil (available to purchase).

    Now you can

    • Alter and upcycle all your old clothes using the skills you have learned
    • Create unique and personalised items for all your friends and family
    • Expand on your skills even further with Luchi & Ota's Clothing Alterations and Upcycling - Part 2!


    Leave with your newly upcycled garment and a set of skills that will last a lifetime.

    Did you know?

    Upcycling is not just a great way to reuse old clothes; it also benefits the environment. If every person in America recycled just one t-shirt, we would save 210 billion gallons of water!
