What happens in this class?

We all have items in our wardrobe that we like but for some reason, we don’t wear them. Why is that? Maybe they are a bit tight, too big, or too long. Or maybe you don't feel comfortable wearing them because it is not your style? The material is lovely, but something in the design just doesn't suit you. Well, we can help you with that with our specialist experience.

The small workshop size ensures valuable one-to-one teacher and participant time, allowing maximum engagement and assistance.

We have decided to split this course into 2…

Superb. Monica is an excellent teacher

During our two sessions, we discussed about six different ideas, and also had the chance to hear about what others were working on. I also picked up some creative techniques for my future projects. These sessions were truly inspiring and brought to light fresh ideas that hadn't crossed my mind before. I successfully wrapped up two of the projects, but there's still a bit of homework to tackle. Thanks so much for the help and patience.

Lovely tutor who was extremely friendly & knowledgeable & gave great advice. The course is two evenings over four hours. First class was talking through alteration methods which was informative & opened up a lot of ideas to be able to mend items brought to class. It did mean we were left with only 2 hours to do any alterations which felt too little. Feel like classes need to be longer or over more evenings. On a whole enjoyed the experience.

Inspiring course! I feel so excited to start changing up my wardrobe and caring for my clothes better. Gonna try and book on another course soon!
Jennie Creitzman - 7 February 2023
Great teacher, facilities and Organisation, but not quite enough time and structure to complete tasks. Would still go back though :)
Kirsty Atkinson - 10 December 2022
This was such an informative and fun class, gave me loads of helpful advice and ideas for my sewing. Lots of focus on sustainability and affordability. Highly recommend!

THanks Shona enjoyed despite timings not clear thus missed some of first session and was unclear if follow up session going ahead
Anna - 28 June 2022
I really enjoyed this course. I was a bit nervous about attending as I was out of practice using the sewing machine and not sewn for a while. Monika totally put me and the other attendee at ease and we went through lots of useful information to help guide our decisions. At the second day of the class, I brought some additional items with me to discuss and overall between the two sessions I altered a skirt and a top that had been hanging in the wardrobe not being worn for years! Both are now much better and more usable and I am looking forward to wearing them again. I would definitely attend further classes with Remode Collective.

Excellent class - Monika shared useful practical ideas that will have me tackling clothing alterations in a more imaginative way. Lovely small group and good resources
