This workshop will take you through the steps of up-cycling a used pair of jeans into two new wearable pieces. From one pair of jeans, you will be shown how to deconstruct, design and sew a bucket hat and a tote bag. The workshop aims to inspire the importance of not only conscious consumption but also textile waste awareness.

You do not need to know how to sew as you will learn or can have it sewn by me. Although some sewing experience is preferred.
