Sewing Workshop 13-15 July

Teens Summer Sewing Workshop: the Eco Experience

Tallis has teamed up with Caroline Miles to offer this three-day Eco-Workshop for 14/15 years+ teenaged boys and girls. Running from 9-13hr daily at our lakeside atelier in Geneva, 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. Students take home all projects created in the sewing workshop.

Price for workshop: 400CHF per student (due to Covid-19, we have reduced the number of students to guaranty more spacing between them).

Includes free access to the Tallis Eco Wardrobe Online Guide.

********

Dates: 13-15 July, 9-13hr daily.
Location: Tallis Atelier, Rue Docteur-Alfred-Vincent 10, 1201 Geneva 
(5 minutes walk from Cornavin station).

For an alternative date, consider our other sewing workshop on 20-22 July.
