Sunday 2. June at 14:00 - 18:30

MAISON SHIFT • Zeughausstrasse 56, 8004 Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland

Textile upcycling refers to the process by which an item of clothing that is no longer in use is given a second life.

In this workshop, participants will create the Sundown dress, the laptop bag "Cascade" or the cushion "Flood Pillow", from Rafael Kouto's latest "A Drop of Sunshine", which was created in collaboration with BERNINA and combines the aesthetics of the designer's two worlds: Africa and Europe.

The current Rafael Kouto x Bernina collection is open source (all pieces in the collection are available as patterns for your own sewing projects) and has been designed with sustainable and ethical principles in mind.

Bring along: For the dress: elastic fabric remnants (at least 5 meters) or discarded shirts/jersey dresses, for the cushion and the laptop bag: fabric remnants and jersey T-shirts
