Upcycle Your Christmas Jumper

11 December 11:30 to 1pm

This workshop will take you through some simple techniques to help you update a pre-loved jumper into a festive piece for you to keep or share as a gift. We will take you through some quick fixes for adding embellishments, textures and Christmas sparkles.

Bring along your own jumper to decorate, all additional materials and kit will be provided.

One in four Christmas jumpers are worn once and then thrown away in the new year, creating something unique and personal can help you to take care of yours.

Fast Fashion Therapy was born out of a desire to help others to get the skills needed to repair and rework their clothing, giving everyone the opportunity to experiment with fashion in a more sustainable way. The practical workshop can hopefully act as a therapy for our collective addiction to fast fashion! We run workshops twice a month at The Create Place in Bethnal Green, in which you are invited to bring along your old or damaged clothing to get the advice and spaced needed to fix them up.

Be quick! We have only 15 spaces available!

*Open only to Staff and Students of Birkbeck, SOAS, and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
