Do Up Your Denim

Wednesday 12 July
14:00 – 15:30
Makers Space

Transform your old denim in this super fun, creative workshop!

With over seven years of fashion expertise between them, PLANET SOPH and NOTJUSTTRASH are keen to share their top tips and tricks that will help give your old clothes a new lease of life! Bring along your old denim and they’ll help you turn it into something new.

Not only will you learn how to create patches using diamante bedazzling, fabric pens and paint, embroidery thread and hand sewing, you’ll also learn how to cover up holes and stains, and save your denim from landfill.

The workshop will be an hour and half – bring along any old denim items, as well as a water bottle, any snacks, and any additional creative materials you would like to work with (e.g. pens, sketchbooks, paints, etc!)

PLANET SOPH is a wacky knitwear brand run by Sophie Nancy in London. It came into existence during lockdown and has since evolved into wearable art. Sophie makes clothing sustainably, using deadstock fabric and ethically sourced wool.

NOTJUSTTRASH is a sustainable fashion brand based online and in London founded by Molly Hayward seven years ago. Molly’s main focuses are on reselling vintage, up-cycled collections and most recently knit accessories.
