New Workshop: reduce, reuse, recycle!
On Saturday March 21, we’ll receive Kathryn Tonk, a stylist and upcycling (textile) artist, who will guide you to personalise your own clothes.
Join this 3-hours workshop and transform your own garment(s) and turn it in something unique! During this workshop you can experiment with textile paints and drawing with the sewing machine. Kathryn will provide some illustrations, but you can also be creative yourself and bring or make your own!
You don’t need any experience for this workshop.
Kathryn Tonk spent 2019 building TONKS Recycled Textiles from her studio in Amsterdam Noord, with the intention to create a platform that showcases the possibilities with up-cycling what we already have. The materials used are mostly from household origin (i.e curtains, tablecloths, tea towels) and embellished by the eccentricities found at flea markets. Since this year she is also hosting workshops at De Steek, with her own signature, and by using unconventional, second hand fabrics.
