NEW! Upcycle with artist Angel of All Angels Are Aliens – 4 weeks from Wednesday 10th January
Angel Contreras is a Latin American artist living in Melbourne. He’s been making his own clothes since he was 15, and has had his own clothing brand – All Angels Are Aliens – since 2019.
Specialising in upcycling, and only using second hand materials, Angel’s one-off pieces are all hand- and machine-sewn in his studio in Brunswick. He is a master of the innovative and the experimental, and uses screen-printing, airbrushing and freehand embroidery to bring a new ultra-modern feel to secondhand clothes. Make sure to follow him on Instagram and TikTok to see him in action.
We are so happy to have Angel come through our doors as a guest teacher – and now is your chance to access his templates and ideas to rework your own piece – whether it be hoodies, jeans, tote bags, flannel shirts and more.
This course will take place over four weeks (10 hours tuition total). The first class will have also have co-teacher on hand to help everyone maximise their ideas and get started smoothly!
Skill level:This course is open to beginners upwards – but we highly recommend having basic sewing skills (i.e. be able to thread up a machine) before you get started. Feel free to enrol in our Sewing Machine Basics or Essential Sewing Techniques to brush up on your skills beforehand, in order to maximise your time in this class. Don’t worry if your confidence isn’t huge – Angel will recommend projects to fit your skill level! Open to adults and young adults. Men and non binary folk are encouraged to attend!
