Upcycling your Wardrobe: Remix & Remake
March 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Remix and Remake shows sustainable strategies on how we can create a new, exciting wardrobe full of favorite items from the filler in our wardrobes.
In the workshop “Remix & Remake” the participants learn how to get a tailor-made unique piece relatively easily. Sorted out or exchanged clothes * serve as the starting material for new creations. We playfully start to cut the clothes and develop new cuts, shapes, garments that correspond to our own type. Whether it’s black, colorful, wild or sec and straight … sewing skills are an advantage.
If you have never sewed before, it is an advantage to attend the basic sewing course.
Corinna Mattner has been experimenting with upcycling in the frame of her exhibition projects (frfr-international), as costume pictures and with her label Romy Hood for over 10 years.
In the course she shares her ideas and helps you develop your “gaze” for upcycling, and shows you how to get ahead more easily in tricky places. She gives tips and helps to find simple solutions, knows which fabrics can be combined well, which details and parts of the dress can be easily installed and how difficulties can be avoided.
