AT BRENDERUP HØJSKOLE
We bring alive used clothes and textiles – we sew, dye and print, and give our personal touch to clothes, bags, cushions, baskets and other textiles.
We reuse clothes, bed linen and curtains – find the good, beautiful and strong material in the local second hand stores.
You will learn basic skills in using a sewing machine, and you will learn to print on and dye textiles with different techniques.
You will get knowledge about the industrial textile production – what are sustainable clothes? – and you will get to know the difference between natural and artificial textile fibers.
We work with used clothes – we cut, sew, dye or print to give the clothes new life and your personal touch.
You will learn to adjust clothes that are too big or too small, and to draw and adjust simple patterns.
We use our imagination, and good skills will make it all possible.
Bags, baskets and cushions
We sew bags, baskets and cushions and maybe add prints or applications. It is about choosing the right materials, designs and colors.

You will learn different techniques for printing on and dyeing textiles.
Frame printing – we work with stencils in paper and print on t-shirts and other textiles
Tie dye – we twist, wind and dye
Eco print – we make prints of leaves and plants directly on fabrics
