Alterations and Repairs Workshop with Headintclouds
Learn how to fix and adjust your wardrobe
Introducing a series of workshops from Headintclouds where you will learn how to make more of your wardrobe. With over 8 years experience working in the fashion industry as a garment technologist, Becky from Headintclouds will share with you her knowledge and skills, showing you how to repair and alter your clothes.
With a different focus each week, workshops can be booked individually or with a discount as a block booking.
Week 1 - 11th April: How to Replace a Zip
Bring in an garment with a broken zip and Becky will show you how to repair it! All equipment will be provided, you'll simply have to bring a garment and a zip which will fit into it.
If you don't have a broken garment at the moment but still want to learn, we can provide calico and a zip to practice on.
Week 2 - 25th April: Hems
Want to take something up, or let something down a little? We can show you how in this class. Either bring in the item you want to change and we can show you the best way to alter it. With professional hemming techniques, Becky will show you how to achieve that 'shop-bought' finish.
As with week 1, if you don't have a garment which you'd like to amend but still want to learn, we can provide calico to practice the technique on.
Week 3 - 9th May: Alterations
This is your week to pick our brain - it's for all other general alterations! Simply bring in your unloved pieces and we can help amend them and give them a new lease of life.
Whether it's taking something in, slimming a leg, repairing a hole or even something as simple as fixing a button, Becky will guide you through the best way on how to do this.
Please bear in mind that the class is only an hour and a half and we can't do full garment reconstructions in this time.
