Do you want to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle and make your wardrobe more sustainable?
This workshop provides you some ideas and techniques as to do it. We apply the concepts of Reduce – Recycle – Repair in reducing waste when making fashionable yet sustainable garments.
We used to have much wastage in the process of making garments especially on the use of fabric. Now you will learn in these sessions how to make a stylish zero waste top.
Shirt or blouse is a common fashion item in our wardrobe. You will learn how to recycle it when you don’t want it anymore. You will have to know how a shirt is constructed and then you can deconstruct it. We aim to reconstruct two to three new fashion garments after the deconstruction.
(Remarks: In order to join these sessions, you should possess basic sewing skills or have joined the Reduce sessions.)
If a garment is broken, can we think of a way to prolong its life instead of throwing it away? You will learn a fashionable hand embroidery technique in repairing a broken garment. Different from the traditional repair, this technique creates a new look to the part that has been repaired.
(Remarks: You may bring your own garment.)
You may take All or any one of these sessions (daily basis).
