In this workshop Kate Uzzell from Studio 1A and Lydia Higginson of Made My Wardrobe opened the doors of their beautiful sewing studio in Bristol and combined their pattern cutting and dressmaking skills to deliver a weekend of ethical fashion construction. Utilising zero-waste approaches to garment design and looking at how to source and use cloth in a more conscious way. This course was designed for those who had never made a garment before while also appealing to experienced sewers wanting to create clothing in a more ethical and sustainable way.
All the necessary fabric, haberdashery and sewing machines were provided (unless people preferred to bring their own machine.) We had lots of juicy discussion around the cutting table about how we can dress in a way that serves ourselves and the planet.
