UPCYCLING WORKSHOP
Learn how to sew your own unique product from textile waste

Do you dream of a more mindful and meaningful wardrobe? We invite you on a journey threaded through a series of workshops, where we will guide you to transform textile waste into something wonderful.

// WHAT
We’ll start with an introduction to the world of upcycling and the textile waste that you will be working with. Then you will be guided through the creation of your own unique product made from your choice of discarded textiles. We are still planning the exact product that we will be making at this workshop. If you have any idea, something you have always wanted to sew - then we welcome any suggestions at contact.wair@gmail.com. 

All materials + sewing machines will be provided/available, as well as free tea, coffee, snacks, but you are welcome to bring your own old clothes and food too.


Don’t know how to sew? Join our SEWING PRACTISE session 16/2  and 2/3

// WHY

The fashion industry is the second largest polluter on this planet. From modern slavery to mass consumerism, we need to change our ways, but it can be difficult to know where to start. We want to give you the power to reclaim your style by making your own sustainable fashion pieces and together challenge the status quo of the fashion industry.

// WHO

This workshop is organised by Wair, who is on a mission to give textile waste a second chance by transforming it into upcycled wonders.
