Silk is particularly difficult fabric to work with - which is precisely why this class exists! Fabrications' founder, Barley Massey, will guide you through the process of making a pair of pretty knickers from silk scarves and clippings.

By the end of this class, you will be confident in handling, sewing and cutting silk - that is no easy feat! You will learn how to cut a simple pattern, assemble pieces on the machine, use multiple stitch functions and up-cycle everyday silk scarves into something beautiful.

Materials and refreshments are included - but if you want to bring your own silk fabric or scarves please feel free.

About your host, Fabrications

Fabrications - an East London based creative hub!

Fabrications is an independent gallery, shop and workshop dedicated to the best contemporary textile practice and design, with a particular interest in eco-conscious design.

Fabrications opened in June 2000 in a refurbished derelict shop on Broadway Market in Hackney, East London. The shop's founder, Barley Massey, has spent the last 20 years finding ingenious ways to turn scraps into original fabrics and using recycled materials to create cutting-edge items. Since 2012, "The Imaginarium", a fully-fitted working studio, has hosted workshops and classes.

Barley has been awarded as one of Kevin McCloud's (Grand Designs) Green Heroes for her minimally-processed, up-cycled products, which "demonstrate a lightness of touch backed up by a rigorous approach".
