Are you ready to take on our Upclyling Challenge? Everyday we will be running our Upcycling Challenge in the Creative Living Theatre.
What is the Challenge?
Contestants will be given an old item of clothing (a T-Shirt, pair of jeans, a shirt) plus a metre of fabric and some trims. The teams will then have 45 minutes to create something new out of their materials.
The audience, will then select their favourite garment. The winning team will walk away with a great sewing prize.
Plus on Sunday The Great British Sewing Bee’s Esme Young will be joining us on the stage to offer advice and tips to the contestants. There will also be a short Q&A with Esme after the challenge.
