Online Textile Teach-in: Re-purposing Wool Sweaters

Wednesday April 1, 5:30 to 7:00 pm 



In this online Sustainable Textile Teach-In, we will explore ways to upcycle wool sweaters that have seen better days. Use simple handsewing techniques to turn every part of your sweater into new and  usable objects. Learn about the felting process and natural wool fibres. All levels of experience are welcome.  

Please prepare the following: 

  • A wool sweater that you are willing to cut up and turn into something else 
  • Scissors (ideally fabric scissors, but any kind will do) 
  • A needle and thread
  • While you do not need a zoom account to participate, consider downloading the app on your device:
