TEXTILE UPCYCLING WORKSHOP , Saturday 4th August, 11am – 5pm (£35 / £25 conc)

New Acropolis, 19 Compton Terrace, London N1 2UN. Tel: 0207 359 0059

Fusing Barley’s upcycling practise of over 20 years and love of wisdom, I am delighted to have been invited to deliver a 1 day workshop at New Acropolis, School of Philosophy.

The day will be made up of 2 parts – a lively talk that aims to connect the modern-day practise of upcycling to timeless philosophical ideas of transformation/alchemy, “Cradle to Cradle” learning, modelling from nature and perceptions of beauty. Following the talk (and a break) we will put some of the concepts into practise in a creative sewing session – bring along some old clothes for rejuvenation. No experience is needed! Places are limited. Book yours here: http://www.newacropolisuk.org/home.php

MAKE MORE FESTIVAL , Thursday 23 – Monday 27th August (Tickets from £12 per day)

Victoria Park, Hackney. https://makemore.art/

Barley will be joining YODOMO who have been filming some of my sewing classes (very exciting – currently at the editing stage!) so that my teachings (with support material downloadable PDF sheets) will be available online as well as in person at Fabrications! Come and find me on Saturday morning for some demonstrations in the Yodomo Curated Makers Dome. There will be lots of other exciting things making and doing happening there as well!
