Fashion for Keeps: A Little Goes A Long Way

A free workshop to design your own patch

In this workshop explore the history of patches - how they are a form of group identification in the services, a creative symbol of counterculture to express an individual’s personal identity or even as a means to show support for a particular cause.

Design a own patch, either for a cause or simply to illustrate life, loves, family and community.  For this bring any small fabric offcuts or cool textiles you like such as trinkets and found objects such as odd earrings, fake flowers, beads, buttons, old jewellery to embellish the patch. Please also bring a notebook and pen.

The workshop is delivered by Sophie & Frances, two creatives who specialise in up-cycling and reusing textiles and is part of Art of Resistance a two-year project exploring creative acts of resistance. Find out more about the project and other workshops in the series here.

Due to high demand of places, there is a £5 refundable deposit which will be reimbursed at the end of the session. If you are unable to attend the session or need to cancel, please give us 24hrs notice, in order for  your deposit to be refunded.

About Sophie

Sophie’s relentless passion for making clothes has taken her on a creative journey from the World of Wearable Arts in NZ, to study fashion design in San Francisco, to now living and working in Bristol as a costume maker for theatre & performance. Reusing and upcycling textiles and fabrics are the main focus of her creative projects today.

About Frances

Frances is a self proclaimed creative-Jill-of-all-trades whose experience in the hospitality industry left her with a thirst to dedicate more of her time to her many other creative talents; developing skills in art & design, professional tiling, painting & decorating, jewellery & fashion design, upcycling and teaching yoga. She uses her constantly developing, multifaceted skill-set to enrich and inspire not only her own life, but also within communities around her.
