This workshop is facilitated by Bethan , the founder of Buy by Bethan – you can check her out her wonderful creations here.

Tickets available here:

Join Bethan at Make North Docks to learn a variety of techniques to give a new lease of life to your old items of clothing!

The workshop will include:
– painting
– drawing and writing on your clothes to give them a whole new look.
– various techniques and methods for up cycling a garment – without sewing!
– cutting
– adding embellishments such as pins, diamonds
– distressing fabric

Please ensure you bring a clean item of clothing along, this could be a blazer, a leather jacket, a denim jacket or some jeans.

What to expect:
The session will begin with a show and tell element for an item Bethan has reworked, along with a sketching session for you to get your ideas on to paper about how you would like your garment to look.

There will be a short teaching section where the variety of techniques that can be used will be showcased on a ‘template’ garment.

You will then be free to unleash your creativity and upcycle your garment using the tools provided – Bethan will be around to help with any questions or hands on advice needed.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Any child under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and we operate a no under 10 policy.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

On street parking is free but limited to 2 hours so vehicle drivers will either need a permit for street parking or we have limited parking spaces on site. Public transport links are nearby, and the venue is easily accessible on foot from Liverpool City Centre (see our website for more information, we’re located at Make North Docks).

How accessible is the venue?

The workshop is located on the ground floor which provides full accessibility to the premises including toilet provisions. We would advise wheelchair users to contact the workshop provider on the sale of the ticket to arrange a parking bay.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Feel free to get in touch with the Make CIC office at 0151 601 8665 or email

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this.

Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 7 days before the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, a register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled – in this instance we will give as much notice as possible, usually at least 5 days, and offer alternative dates if appropriate.

This class does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales to proceed, so there is a possibility of it being cancelled, but we will contact you five days before if this is the case.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

*Refunds will be given minus Eventbrite fees, unless Make CIC cancel the class, in which case a full refund will be given*

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

What can I bring into the event?

You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. All materials are provided and we also have a café on site selling coffee, tea and delicious lunches/ snacks. Wear comfortable clothing and feel free to bring along a drink or a snack if you prefer.
