A community workshop
Birmingham based textile artist Jutta Stahlhacke will lead four relaxed and creative workshops to make beautiful things out of your old and tired clothing and scraps.

Each two hour session will help you transform your stuff and unleash your creative threads!   Try out different ways of transforming your old t-shirts, shirts, linen and other textiles into something new and useful.
Share with us how and what you are ‘upcycling’already, what your mothers and grandmothers (or fathers) did, chat with us about your ideas.
Sessions are designed for adults and supervised older children
Please bring your old textiles, scissors, knitting needles, crochet hooks and sewing kit.

As well as your own creation on the day, we’ll create a joint work at each session using a loom in the trees.

Throughout the summer Jutta will also be harvesting, spinning and weaving yarn from  nettles and other plant sources found in the Gardens …
