Make an Upcycled Pet Bed, Saturday 9th March 2019

We all have that comfy old sweater or hoodie that we no longer use but can’t bear to throw away. Well now you can put it to go use and transform it into a cosy bed for your cat or dog!

Book a space now for a discounted price of just £30/£23 (usually £36/£27).

This workshop is taking place during Pass It On Week – Scotland’s annual celebration of re-use! – and will begin with a talk and open discussion, taking a closer look at spending and consumption habits, reflecting on the environmental impact that our everyday choices have and sharing suggestions on how we might be able to minimize these and prevent waste. Participants are welcome to contribute as much as they like, or simply listen and reflect on what’s being shared.

Following this will be a 2-hour workshop where you will learn how to make a beautiful upcycled bed for your beloved fluffy pal. No previous knowledge or skills are required; all you need to bring along is an old jumper and we’ll teach you the rest! The sewing skills you will be taught in this class can then also be used time and time again to make various sewing projects of your own.

You are encouraged to bring along an old jumper or sweatshirt with you to use for this class. If you don’t have one, why not check your local charity shops and second hand stores for a preloved piece to transform? All other materials, equipment, and tools are provided, plus teas and coffees to keep those creative juices flowing.
