YOOX Net a Porter Sponsors 1 Day Repair & Upcycle Workshop


Thanks to sponsorship from YOOX Net a Porter, Fashion-Enter Ltd is able to offer up to 25 individuals a free place on its invaluable Repair & Upcycle 1-day Workshop.

Attendees can learn how to repair, alter or upcycle existing garments to give them a new lease of life and prevent unnecessary textile waste. The workshop takes place at the fully-equipped FC Designer Workspace in Islington with experienced and friendly tutors on-hand.

The workshop covers:

+ How to thread an industrial sewing machine

+ How to hem a trouser / skirt

+ How to hem a jersey product

+ How to tailor an existing garment to fit

+ Techniques to upcycle and customise an existing garment (from home or available at the Workspace)

+ Unique styling tips and advice from the Net a Porter team

Feedback from previous Repair & Upcycle Workshops included:

“The workshop was amazing! So, so, helpful and the staff are very friendly and knowledgable.”

“I learnt how to make something out of scrap and use different machines. It was really fun, great people, really friendly, I learned a lot, thank-you.”

I loved the atmosphere; everyone was so lovely. I felt very safe, and I can’t wait to be back and learn some more.”

FEL CEO Jenny Holloway said: “Being able to repair, upcycle or make a garment from scratch, is a lifelong skill that is fundamental to caring for our clothes so that they last that bit longer. 360,000 tonnes of textiles are thrown away each year with the average garment being worn only 10 times. It is time to  rethink how we buy and care for our clothing and being able to make good repairs or alternations is a great place to start”

Dates and Times: Friday 21st April 2023, 10am – 3pm

Location: FC Designer Workspace, Studios 1 – 12, 9 Durham Road, London N7 7FB Nearest tube Finsbury Park
