Climb Mount Vintage

The Upcycle Yourself Workshop taught the kids how to make a whole new outfit out of secondhand clothing. Everyone could participate and there were no age boundaries because Andrea Crews made sure all techniques were simple and efficient. The students were able to show off their outfits on the catwalk and on the ikcams!

A mountain of second-hand clothing, work tables, sewing machines, sewing kits, tailor's dummy's and lots of haberdashery made sure all the kids had enough material to get going. They had the choice to either make the clothes themselves or let the Andrea Crews trainers make their outfit.

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