Do you…

  • have a pair of jeans that you have fallen out of love with and no longer wear
  • hate waste

Now’s the time to dig them out of your wardrobe, bring them to this workshop and learn how to customise them. Toyah has devised a workshop which is fun and suitable for anyone aged 11 or older.

In this two hour workshop you learn how to revamp your jeans using fabric paint, embellishments, cutting and altering. 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 revamp your jeans to your own design.


A pair of jeans that are ripped, or that you’ve fallen out of love with.

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