Don’t throw out that ugly shirt, baggy jumper or ill-fitting skirt – simply upcycle it! Watch the design and production process as ALAS Design Company transforms disused clothing into completely new garments. The designers will turn armholes into necklines, necklines into bustles and shirts into skirts. A practical workshop coincides with the exhibition giving guests the tools to upcycle their favourite old t-shirt or any unwanted item from their wardrobe. These creative and fun solutions will have participants connecting with their clothing as they breathe new life and meaning into their old garments. This event is supported by ALAS Design Company and Janome.
