Happy Mondays, Workshop

A fun and exciting workshop for students wanting to upcycle your wardrobes.

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. 

Below is a list of suggested materials:

  • A piece of old clothing/material
  • Scissors
  • Needles and embroidery thread
  • Fabric pens/acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Fabric glue/superglue
  • Accessories that you can recycle from other garments e.g. buttons, beads, zips.

Don't worry if you don't have/are unable to get all of these things, as long as you have some means of upcycling your item then Molly will be able to guide and advise you.

This event is part of Happy Mondays – your weekly creative fix in partnership with LSU. Happy Mondays events are for Loughborough University students only.
