HOW TO JOIN US
PREVIOUS WORKSHOP SERIES
DYEING WITH ROUA ALHALABI
Roua will introduce you to the making of natural ink and the dyeing process. The workshop puts our second design principle into action “Make products that don’t create waste or pollution.”
SUSTAINABILITY IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY
This is the theoretical focused workshop of this series. We will start this workshop by talking about the current situation of the fashion industry which is tainted by social & environmental issues. In the second part of this workshop we like to focus on the future. Which is from our perspective a sharp contrast with the existing paradigm.
THE JOY OF MAKING
In this workshop we invite you to bring back the joy of making. Together we design and make a simple care bag. However, understanding the process, means you understand the work and effort it takes, contesting the ideal of fast and replacable fashion.
