Embark on a transformative journey of sustainability.
In just 3 hours, Nadia, a talented fashion designer, will guide you through the art of upcycling, breathing new life into your clothes while promoting eco-friendly practices.
During the workshop, Nadia will introduce you to her brand and the values that drive her work in the fashion industry. You'll gain insights into sustainable practices and get acquainted with the essential tools, particularly the sewing machine, which will be your creative companion throughout the session.
Explore Nadia's curated selection of dead stock fabrics and off-cuts, carefully chosen to offer a variety of textures, colours and patterns. These materials will be at your disposal as you reimagine and transform your chosen garment, giving it a new lease of life.
With Nadia's guidance, you'll examine your garment, identify any defects or areas for improvement and unleash your creativity to design a unique and personalised piece of clothing. Learn the art of cutting fabrics, incorporating both stretchy and non-stretchy materials to create a harmonious blend of textures.
The sewing machine becomes your tool of expression as you stitch together the fabrics, witnessing the magic of upcycling firsthand. Throughout the workshop, Nadia will provide expert guidance, helping you bring your design to life and create a sustainable fashion statement.
As you take a refreshing break, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, connect with fellow participants and soak in the creative atmosphere of the workshop. Sustainability lies at the heart of this experience, empowering you to make a positive impact on the fashion industry.
At the end of this inspiring journey, you'll leave with newfound skills in reworking and upcycling garments, enabling you to extend the lifespan of your clothes and reduce waste. Your tangible result will be your own trousers, upcycled and infused with a unique touch. Wear your sustainable creation with pride and be a part of the movement towards a more conscious and creative fashion future.
