About the event
In Part 2 of this exciting 2-part workshop, RE-RUNN founder, Sakina, will give an introduction to her process of re-constructing leisurewear. You will learn how to approach combining and reassembling de-constructed pieces to create a new-upcycled garment.
At the end of this workshop you will have designed and created your own leisurewear item. Attendees are welcome to come to a free social sewing drop-in session at the Preloved Studio on a Tuesday if they need additional time to finish their re-construction.
Sign up for the full 2-part workshop by visiting the Part 1 registration page.
Workshop skill level: Improver (you already have basic sewing machine skills under your belt.)
Meet your workshop facilitator: Sakina O'Neill
Sakina created RE-RUNN after many years as Head of Design working in the fashion industry, supplying major High Street brands and retailers. While travelling the world, both designing and overseeing production, Sakina witnessed first-hand the excessive wastefulness of the industry and felt compelled to play some part in the solutions to this unsustainable model. She sought ways to extend the life of existing garments, that otherwise end up as landfill, to reduce fashion’s negative environmental impact.
