All attendees will be contacted before the event to select a dress style they would like to make so we prepare a pattern for you beforehand. Please bring along old or ripped jeans, it doesn't matter how unwearable the jeans are we can find creative ways around it. Corduroy, twill and other woven fabrics will also work as well as denim.

Sewing machines and equipment will be provided as well as spare jeans. No sewing experience required.

Breakfast will be included as will tea and coffee throughout the day. We will also take a lunch break and there are cafe's/Sainsbury's nearby.


Agnes LDN aims to help make sustainable choices easier for everyone. Through our up cycling workshops we aim to teach valuable sewing skills that can be used in every day life.


Henri London believe sustainable fashion is not just about buying. It's also about making, mending & rejoicing in our clothes. Their studio is designed to be a hub for creativity, connecting & learning. So they've brought in some of their close friends as guest designers to share their passion and craftsmanship with those seeking to develop their own skills. The studio is based next to their store on Hackney Road.
