Sewing and upcycling

6pm - 8pm | 08/02/2023 to 08/02/2023 | Art Exchange Gallery

Bring along any of your clothes in need of a new lease of life! Artists Tom and Iris will show you how to breathe new life into your favourite sweatshirt, fix a tear in your jeans with visible mending and hide that stain on your jumper under embroidery. We’re also making a communal patchwork quilt if you just want to chill and make a contribution. All sewing and embroidery materials provided  – and it’s free for students.
