This Week at Loughborough | 15 February
Happy Mondays: Repair, reuse and refashion
15 February, 7pm, Online
Student Molly Gransden will show you how to convert old or unworn clothes into new items without spending a penny.
Upcycling is great fun and good for the environment. This eco- friendly workshop is all about creating your own unique style from cast offs. By upcycling these items, you’ll feel like you’ve got a new item of clothing that you can’t wait to wear. All you will need is a piece of clothing that you might otherwise have thrown in the bin. Whether you have a denim jacket that you feel looks dated, or a t-shirt that your just plain bored of, you’ll leave this workshop with something ‘new’ and fabulous to rock around campus!
This workshop will take place online via Microsoft teams. Details on how to join the session will be sent via email to everyone who books.
