Re-think to Up-cycle
June 30th – July 6th 2019
This is a workshop about clothing. It questions which clothing we want and need, for us and others, what for and for how long and how we can make and use it.
Yes, we like fashion but we must stop adding waste - instead we must use the waist that already exists. So let's find things out of fashion and out of context to invent and create something new and unseen. We are going to take things that had been produced but could not be sold, things which had been worn out, or things that had been lost and found. We'll take them apart and link them anew, nail them, glue them, stitch or sew them together into garments for a party, for a season, for yourself or for many others, something serious, posh, casual, sportive, fun, or formal.
This way we are going to give re-cycling its own language and pay tribute to a past taking part in the present. We don't want to be exclusive but inclusive and stimulate action, not consumption!
