Thinking Green: Refashioning men’s button-down shirts (Ballajura)

March 25, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Explore how the classic button-down shirt can be reimagined in a flattering woman’s design.

Please note that this is a program for adults and young people aged 16 and over and is a hands-on workshop. Photographs and videos may be taken of the event. Please book one ticket for each person attending.

While creating your project, this workshop presented by local upcycler Mariana Kirova of EcoFashionSewing.con will uncover material specifics, tips on how to work with colour and pattern, clever tricks on utilising the leftovers and creating with zero-waste in mind, insights on how to turn mistakes into design features and more. Participants will be asked to bring a couple of shirts and make the class project while learning and practicing new skills.

This hands-on workshop will demonstrate both hand and machine sewing techniques. Although you don’t need sewing experience for the hand sewing, you’ll need to know how to thread and use your sewing machine if you choose to practice the demonstrated machine techniques.

There will be a limited number of machines available for sharing, but attendees are highly encouraged to bring their own machine for easy practice of the machine techniques. All participants will need to bring basic sewing items, such as hand-sewing needles, threads, scissors, and other notions which will be further communicated via email before the workshop.

Participants will need to bring three button-down shirts to create their class project. Some shirts may be also available to purchase for a small fee at the day of the workshop. Further details will be communicated via email before the workshop.

Thinking Green is a series of free programs hosted across the City’s libraries and community venues! To find out more and see the full list of workshops and talks, visit the City of Swan Libraries website.
