Do you…

  • have an old pair of jeans that you no longer wear
  • have jeans that are beyond repair and you can’t wear
  • hate waste

Now’s the time to dig them out of your wardrobe and bring them to this no sew denim bag workshop. Toyah has devised a workshop which is fun and suitable for anyone aged eight or older.

In this two hour workshop you learn how to make a handbag out of a pair of jeans and embellish it. Once you’ve created your bag, you learn how to embellish it using metallic paints. You’ll give

  • an old pair of jeans a new lease of life
  • Learn ways to recycle your wardrobe
  • Have a positive impact on climate change

Ever felt the urge to design it yourself? Now is your chance. Bring your old denim jeans and join Toyah and her helpers for a creative fashion-based workshop. She’ll teach you how to up-cycle using

  • no-cost/low-cost techniques
  • creative skills
  • accessible tools, equipment and resources
  • thriftiness

Toyah encourages individuality and creative flare; promoting confidence, self esteem, self promotion and a sense of pride and achievement, and to utilise waste resources. 

So don’t delay, book your place in our Design It Yourself workshop and create a handbag to your own design.


Old denim jeans that you won’t be wearing again!

If you don’t have old jeans to bring, don’t worry, we’ll probably have a pair or two!
