What you'll do
You will enjoy two hours of creative upcycling and reuse of clothes and textile waste, transforming it into new objects with professional assistance and guidance in the process. The purpose will be allways learn how to reuse and repair and to understand the unlimited potencial of resources that you can find everywhere, special in your closet. More than a learning experience, these workshops are a relaxed context to talk about sustainability and approach it in a pratical way. The themes will be different every month, but you will find allways the same ingredients: relaxed and friendly environment, sustainability concerned citizens from every parts of the world and a lot of experiences share. This saturday we will reuse swimsuit fabric samples and create unique versions of the bra, top or underwear that you no longer wear. You only have to bring the part you want to replace. The rest is with us. In the afternoon, we will create a backpack from used jeans and scraps of fabric to wear on the beach and everywhere. Bring the pieces you would like to be recycled. Don't panic if you never met a sewing machine or a needle. Be brave and take the risk.
People say that I am an impact entrepreneur, whatever than means... I see myself more like an empath, a sustainability concerned citizen and an active player that is enthusiastic towards all the (non) innovations that can bring us more humanity. I am Vintage for a Cause founder, learner and developer :).
