Starter Kit Upcycling

February 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Full closet but nothing to wear?

How about processing a few parts into something else? The old sweater, which you love, but which is no longer chic, becomes a hood, the boring croup becomes a cheeky jupe, grandma’s pleated jupe a pantalon …

The Upcycling Starter Kit course is ideal for those who are fascinated by new from old, but do not really know how to start. There are several simple models available as examples. You can also bring projects that you have started with that you don’t really know how to continue …

Existing or exchanged clothes serve as the starting material for new creations. Sewing skills an advantage (but not necessary).

The course participants look at everyone’s clothing and Corinna Mattner shows various simple examples. Each participant then designs their model in micro-sketching in 10 minutes.

Then we go through the projects briefly one by one and develop an implementation plan. So everyone gets a lot of ideas and tricks.

If you can quickly decide what she or he wants to do, you can start implementing it straight away.

We cut up the textiles we brought with us and put them together and start sewing.

The started pieces can then be completed at home alone. There is also the possibility to attend further sewing sessions in the studio or to register for the Remix & Remake course.
