DCP011 - Upcycling T-Shirts

Our beloved T-shirts have provided comfort and style throughout our lives. Now we can take our favourites and give them new life while saving the planet! Each cotton shirt requires 700 gallons of water to produce and can take up to 40 years to decompose. We will discover how fun and easy it is to transform 2 T-shirts into a unique fashion top, limited only by your imagination. This 12-hour workshop covers everything from threading and operating a sewing machine to cutting and sewing a new responsible garment. Students are required to bring the following supplies to the workshop:

  • 2 washed t-shirts
  • Thread
  • Pins
  • Fabric cutting shears
  • Ruler
  • Tape Measure
  • Tailor's chalk
  • Note Paper/Binder
