The 'Design-it-Yourself' Upcycle-Fashion Workshop Programme:
'Wear Art' Meets Fashion!
Delivered by Toyah Hemmings
“We do not need fancy or expensive equipment to create something fabulous!”
I am a self-taught Creative-Fashion Artist delivering The ‘Design-it-Yourself’ Workshop since 2008 in and around Ealing.
I love to inspire individuality and creative flair, and encourage and demonstrate 'how-to' reduce, reuse, recycle our old/tired clothing in ways that are inclusive to all; All techniques/projects are created by hand, no fancy or expensive equipment necessary!
