GIVE A KNIT

HUBBUB @ SOMERSET HOUSE

In collaboration with Somerset House resident Hubbub, Give A Knit! offers you the opportunity to work with two eco-designers to upcycle clothing by hacking, embellishing and reimagining; creating unique pieces for your winter wardrobe to take home with you.

Using a mix of traditional textile techniques, contemporary design and digital application, Give a Knit! is a space to unpick and refashion your sustainable identity under the direction of our eco-fashion designers in residence.

This afternoon of activity offers an antidote to throwaway Christmas culture and provides all the tools necessary to turn an uninspiring sweater or moth bitten jumper into a Winter season statement piece. Join designers Gillian June and Katie Jones for hands on workshops and book in for a spotlight session highlighting the tricks and trade of repurposing and reparation for the fashionably minded.

Give A Knit! is split into two sessions;

Unpicking and Refashioning with Gillian June 13.00 – 16.00

Embellishing and Recreating with Katie Jones 17.30 - 20.30

Across Somerset House, from 1st – 8th December, there will be the chance to feed unwanted clothing to our hungry collection points, created by knitwear designer Katie Jones and inspired by our winter programme.

In celebration of our partnership with Christmas TABLE by Skye Gyngell and StreetSmart, happening later in the month, there will be an option to create a unique item which will be gifted to all homeless and vulnerably housed Londoners attending the dinner.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Your ticket admits you into the entire workshop session, but please choose your spotlight time where you will receive direction and inspiration from the designer

  • Please bring along jumpers or tops you would like to upcycle, the rest of the materials and tools will be provided
