The Upcycle Yourself Workshop taught the participants how to make a whole new outfit out of secondhand clothing. Andrea Crews made sure the techniques were simple and efficient so that anyone could enjoy the experience.

Climb the Vintage Mountain

A mountain of second-hand clothing, work tables, sewing machines, sewing kits, tailor's dummies and lots of haberdashery made sure everyone had enough material to get going. All participants had the choice either make the clothes themselves or let the Andrea Crews Collective help.

The Andrea Crews collective were leading the workshops themselves on July 19, 23 and 26. Afterwards the workshops were led by young fashion designers from Amsterdam, The Hague and Arnhem.

Every Wednesday and Saturday from 12.00 - 18.00 hours at Mediamatic Bank.
