How much?

An opportunity to do something small but significant to remedy the purchase flurry amidst the Christmas present mania; re-invent something you already own. Upcycle your existing clothes in a hands-on afternoon with sustainability-conscious designers Gillian June and Katie Jones. Give a Knit, in collaboration with Somerset House resident Hubbub, provides this unique workshop to create an eco-friendlier wardrobe. Repurpose and repair your way to this season’s statement pieces using contemporary design, traditional textile techniques and digital application. Bring all your uninspiring items for an early afternoon of unpicking and refashioning with Gillian or join Katie Jones for some poppom and patchwork in the evening. If you need an updated winter wardrobe, an antidote to the pervading throwaway culture or simply a personalised gift, all you need to do is Give a Knit.
