Join Making for Change, Trashion Factory and Ellen Rock as they guide you through a ten week programme exploring textile and sewing practices to create a reversible children’s coat.
London College of Fashion’s 1000 Coats initiative is a project that delivers skills development workshops to community sewing groups, reflecting on how fashion and making can build communities and inspire social change. 1000 Coats aims to bring people together from our community, to communicate, share and make together, enabling a sense of wellbeing, connection and empowerment.
Over the course of 10 weeks you will;• Create moodboards and design your fabric •Screen print your fabric • Pattern-cut your coat • Experiment with embroidery techniques • Sew your coat together, learning how to place pockets, create cuffs and sew in your zip. This course is about coming together as a community to learn new skills and create beautiful garments. You’ll choose your child sizing for the coat, but the skills learnt can easily be transferred if you go on to make one for yourself, or a friend, in the future! No existing skills needed, we welcome people with or without any sewing experience. Places are limited, to sign up for the 10 week course or if you have any questions please contact Lauren at Making for Change
