A Week of Upcycling

No comments
I managed to finish a series of upcycling and sewing workshops over the last week of September, and just before I set up the upcycled installation at Green is the New Black. Very hectic but extremely rewarding!

Repair Sewcial

Repair Sewcial was very special. There was a huge response to the workshop and it was sold out. I taught zippers, changing elastic, darning and even darning. The session went really well and very social too! Do keep a look out for the next session.

Off Cut Workshop with Matter

This upcycling workshop involved taking the off cuts (excess or waste fabric from production lines)  from Matter, and participants converted them into various items including a tissue box holder, tissue pouch, and even a bag! I enjoyed this a lot because we were dealing with such beautifully crafted textiles. Do pop over to Matter and read the story behind the fabrics.

Introductory Sewing at Nanyang Polytechnic

This two day session was interesting as I was asked to incorporate innovative techniques such as electronics, and design as well.

Sewing with Children

Working with children is the best because unlike adults, they don't hold back. They explore and don't have the fear we do when trying out something new.  I will be having my last session with these children on Friday!
