Service Description

An inspiring workshop where you will be coached through the process of repurposing your old t-shirts into usable yarn, and then using a variety of techniques from knitting, sewing and crocheting, turn that yarn into useful objects from fruit bowls, to knitted bags, textile art or woven rugs. An activity perfect for all abilities, giving you the confidence and creative flair to transform waste into useful resources. All materials and equipment required to complete the workshop will be supplied, but if you do have any colourful t-shirts you'd like to incorporate into your designs, then please do bring them along. That also goes for your sewing machine and kit if you have favourite equipment that you like to use. Its easier to learn the quirks of your own machine, than try to fathom out a new one! Entry into the workshop is by suggested donation of £3 per session (yes that’s just £3!) which helps towards the running costs of the classes. This is a suggested donation, so if you are unable to cover the costs, please do get in touch and we will create a space for you for free. These workshops are part of our TeXInnovation Partnership with Cultivate Communities CIC and the University of Exeter, and are funded by the National Lottery Community Action Fund. This means that places are strictly limited, therefore as per our T&C's, we require 24 hours notice (at least) to cancel your place. Any "no shows" will be invoiced at the full amount of the course (£45 per person) as we cannot allow these places to be misused. Thank you for your understanding in this matter!
