Join research-based fashion designer Daniela Monasterios-Tan & sustainable slow-fashion designer Adel Ng from Muta.Wear in a group crafting activity.

Choose or rotate between

A: Bringing an item to mend or we can rescue textile waste by patching. Pick up decorative visible-mending stitching techniques to rescue/fix those small annoying booboos and give torn clothes new life!

B: Select and reuse textile waste to reconstruct a super-functional generous shopper tote using the sewing machines on-site.

The workshop will take place in the Project Green showcase in the main atrium of Plaza Singapura. All materials and tools provided, bring your own old clothes to upcycle or mend if you wish!
