Old Clothes, New Tricks: Sashiko Upcycling Workshop

Upcycle your old clothes into incredible new designs with this fun an interactive workshop!

Sashiko upcycling takes clothes with holes in them, and fixes them up with new designs and exciting styles! In this workshop, you'll have the chance to turn some of your old clothes into funky new styles, or come along and use the materials provided! 

Bringing your own clothes is completely optional, though you will get to keep anything you create! Or just come and learn the beautiful art of Sashiko embroidery onto indigo fabric (provided).

This event is is running throughout the day in the LCR, so please do drop by if you're between sessions or looking for something fun to do in the Festival.

We're committed to making sure all Do Something Different events are as accessible as possible for all students.

This event has no special accessibility requirements.

What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon! 

If you had a great time at a DSD event, make sure you head to the website and leave your feedback and stories! Tell us about your ideas and what you want to see under Do Something Different.
