Learn how to turn old woollen jumpers into outdoor adventure suits for young explorers
Join Jacqui Hunter from Hunter Gatherings for a Video Launch and Making Event. We'll be upcycling woollen jumpers that belong to you - perhaps its too felted to wear, has a few holes, or you no longer like it - or a woollen jumper you find from the op shop. Wool has so many benefits: stays warm when wet, fire resistant, stain resistant, antibacterial, breathable – perfect for bush playgroup!
We will provide the sewing machines, basic sewing supplies and the know how!
Participants to bring:
- their child's garment to copy from
- woollen jumpers (if possible) – preferably felted, adult sized (A great excuse to visit the local opshop or clean out your wardrobe).
- sewing kit – pins, scissors, elastic + any interesting patches to sew on
- plate of food to share
If you don't have a jumper to upcycle. We'll have a limited supply jumpers that we've collected available on the day.
All workshop proceeds donated to Medicines Sans Frontiers.
