You’ve always wanted to exercise your creative streak… 

You like art… 

You’re into fashion… 

Maybe you just want to freshen up your wardrobe… 

Many fashion houses have surplus stock that often goes to waste and adds to the overflowing landfills. FABRICATE is encouraging you to use these items to create something new. We’ve slashed the prices on our premium garments so that you can upcycle them and give them your own flair. It’s sustainable, it’s fun and it’s a different way to spend your afternoon.  

So you didn’t go to design school; you’re not the arty type…  

There are a lot of simple things you can learn at FABRICATE that will upscale clothing and bring your ideas to life without having extensive technical knowledge. Cut, stitch, dye, paint, bead; the possibilities are endless. 

 

Food and drinks available at the café bar 

No previous experience is required. Suitable for adults and young people

  • How To: Velcro Fabric Choker⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Step 1: Place the rougher side of the velcro on the edge of the choker and cut so it fits. The rougher side of the velcro should be on the right side (front face) of the choker.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Step 2: You can stitch this down by hand, use a glue gun or a sewing machine for a clean finish.⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Step 3: Repeat step 1 for the fluffy side of the velcro piece. The fluffy side should be on the wrong side of the choker so you can overlap the velcro and close it.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Step 4: Repeat step 2 ⠀
