UPCYCLING WITH BOTANICAL COLORS

UPCYCLING WITH BOTANICAL COLORS

REDUCE, REUSE, UPCYCLE!

In this unique collaboration with Dygo, Materiale Centralen UP!cycling dives into the beautiful art of dying fabrics the natural way – that means no harmful chemicals, no bleach, and no negative environmental impact.

In this workshop attendees can harness the hidden colours of plants and dye a white cotton upcycled creation everyone will be making themselves. 

Materiale Centralen provides the fabric, pretreated and pre-cut so what participants have to do is sew and dye them. All fabric provided for this workshop is donated second hand fabric saved by our collection team.

The workshop promptly is an explanation of the sewing and dying process to don’t miss out on any important information. 

Finally, after the workshop, everybody share together during the open discussion about the meaning of ‘fast fashion’ and how it surrounds and impacts our society.
