I am happy to be provided the opportunity to share with the public about the importance of reconnecting with your clothes and the techniques you can use.
On 14th Jan and 15th Jan, learn how you can reconnect with your clothes through upcycling and repair. In this sharing session, I will take you through the history of upcycling and repair, our obsession with consumption, and what you can do to tackle this! I will be bringing some samples for you to see as well.
14th Jan - Jurong East Regional Library at 2pm (free to the public)

Don't forget that my signature workshop, Restyle Your Wardrobe workshop, is happening on 11 Feb. It is a whole day workshop where you get to spend close to 6 hours with me! Learn how to sew, operate a sewing machine and let's jam and learn techniques to transform your old clothes.
