Upcycling Work & Shop. SAVE THE DATES
For those who always ask for our next upcycling workshop, here it is. And we have doubled the bet!
all about upcycling!
From 14. 27.04.22, you can take part in different upcycling workshops, a panel talk and an upcycling pop up shop at PLATTE.Berlin in Memhardstraße 8 at Alexanderplatz.
Overproduction and fast fashion are one of the biggest CO2 drivers in the global world. A large part of the clothing produced is not sold at all, but is disposed in an environmentally damaging way. "Germans alone throw away one million tonnes of old clothes every year, with around 25% of them unworn," explains Sören Benn, District Mayor of Pankow.
In the upcycling process, creations are redesigned from existing materials without generating any further waste.
Used textiles are upgraded or repurposed, remnants from industrial overproduction and discarded fabrics and cuts from the previous season are used for new designs. This results in exclusive and unique creations that are often handmade.
The UPCYCLING Work & Shop presents concepts and techniques for upcycling in the textile sector.
21 upcycling designers present their products, which will be also for sale.
