      Half Term Sewing Course: the Eco Experience

      Tallis has teamed up with Caroline Miles to offer this 3 day Eco-Workshop. Running from 9-13hr daily in central Nyon, learn how to revamp, mend, upcycle and re-style your tired or ill-fitting garments into useful items.

      In a world of mass consumption, quantity over quality, fast-fashion, next season trends, excessive packaging waste and plastic, we need to act and do our bit for the planet. At the same time as keeping it fun!

      ********

      At the same time as acquiring eco-friendly skills, develop your creative side and learn something new.
      You will: 
      - Learn the basics of sewing
      - How to use a sewing machine
      - How to use an overlock machine
      - Hand-stitching
      - Basic repairs (holes, tears, buttons, zips)
      - Recognise different fabrics and how to work them

      ********

      Bring in clothing that you no longer wear or which needs mending, for example, t-shirts, dresses or jeans. Let’s fix them up, restyle them or alter them completely! You could even bring in one of your dad’s shirts and turn it into a dress! (Make sure your dad doesn’t need it anymore!). Or for the boys, we could combine two different colour shirts.

      For a zero-waste concept, we will also make our own reusable flannels and make-up removal face pads.

      ********

      All sewing supplies and fabrics are included. Participants take home all projects created on the sewing course.

      Price for course: 800CHF per student (due to Covid-19, we have reduced the number of students to guarantee more spacing between them).

      Includes free access to the Tallis Eco Wardrobe Online Guide.

      ********

      Dates: 19 - 21 October, 9-13hr 
      Location: Central Nyon (Ex Machina)

      As an alternative, consider our weekly courses.
