Registrations are now open for my first-ever Silk Purse, Oily Rag style workshop, Second Hand Style – how to develop ‘the fashion eye’!  The workshop is on Sunday 9 June between 1pm and 5:30pm, at the Tasman District Library in Richmond.  Read on to find out more, or click here to register your interest via Facebook.

What’s it about?

How to develop ‘the fashion eye’ is all about passing on my knowedge about successful second-hand clothing shopping.  It’s aimed at helping you to spot second-hand treasures.

In the workshop you will learn how to identify potential and how to make pre-loved items work for you and your wardrobe.  I will be sharing all of my secrets, including loads of practical tips and tricks!  There will be ‘hands-on’ activities too, including developing personal style inspiration boards and some op-shop treasure-hunting with spending money.

How much will it cost?

Single places in the workshop are $65pp, but if you register with a group (two or more) you will each pay just $55pp!

As well as the learning, this fee includes $20 worth of vouchers, a goody bag, a workshop folder with printed course notes and afternoon tea refreshments.
