Denim Dreams Upcycling

June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

At this stitch-tacular event, we’ll be giving your denim favourites a Taylor inspired makeover that’ll have heads turning and jaws dropping faster than a “Love Story” romance!

During this session, Bethan will guide you through the magical world of denim upcycling without a single stitch! From painting to drawing and even writing, you’ll discover how to give your garment that iconic Taylor flair. And of course, what’s a Swift-inspired makeover without a touch of sparkle? Learn how to add gems and glitter to elevate your creation to superstar status!

Don’t forget to bring along a clean denim clothing item – whether it’s a jacket, jeans, skirt, or shorts, the choice is yours!

The fun begins with a show-and-tell session featuring one of Bethan’s reworked creations, followed by a sketching session to bring your design ideas to life. Then, get ready for a short teaching session where Bethan will showcase a variety of techniques on a ‘template’ garment. After that, it’s your time to shine! Unleash your creativity and transform your denim piece into a  Taylor-worthy garment, with Bethan on hand to offer guidance and advice every step of the way.

Grab your denim darlings and get ready to “Begin Again” with a fresh look that’ll have you feeling like “The Lucky One” in no time!

Please note: Denim items are not provided, Please bring your own garments. This can be jackets, jeans, shorts, skirts or shoes if that’s your style!
