A unique opportunity for children aged 8 to 16 to participate in up-cycling workshops and explore the world of sustainable fashion
Venue: Ocean Studios
workshops and explore the world of sustainable fashion
This four-day course, led by professional upcycling designers Abigail Schaefer
from Mukta_un_done and Nina Westwood from Minski.official, in
collaboration with Lizzy Evans from Make at 140, aims to foster creativity,
environmental consciousness, and hands-on skills.
Sustainable and slow fashion has become one of the most significant
movements in the quest for a greener and more earth-friendly manufacturing
industry. Upcycling, in particular, stands out as an effective way to create new
garments using surplus textiles that have already undergone the
manufacturing process. By reusing these materials, designers can produce new
looks with minimal environmental impact.
During the Sustainable Summer Sewing School, students will have the
opportunity to unleash their imagination and express themselves through the
process of designing and creating unique one-of-a-kind garments.
The workshops will cover various techniques, guided by the expertise of Abigail
Schaefer and Nina Westwood, and will take participants through the steps
required to create a mini collection from old garments, fabrics, and other
The workshops will commence with mood boarding and exploring different
shapes, which will then be developed through draping and basic pattern
cutting. As the participants gain a solid foundation in the design process, they
will learn sewing techniques tailored to their abilities for garment construction.
The culmination of their efforts will be showcased in a small-scale fashion
show held at Ocean Studios on Saturday, August 19th.
We strongly believe that the Sustainable Summer Sewing School will provide
invaluable skills, foster creativity, and instil a sense of environmental
responsibility in your child. It is an excellent opportunity for them to engage in
a hands-on learning experience and contribute to a greener future.
