The course introduces students to sustainable ways of creating fashion design using more environmentally friendly methods.


Enter the world of sustainable clothing design and discover a unique way to give new life to the products you already own to reduce waste.

In this creative course, you will learn how to create unique, sustainably made garments and give garments a new life.

Almost anything can be done here. There are no set of rules or procedures. Bring clothes you have lying around and do not use, fabrics you have never used and by combining different materials, shapes and sizes, we will help you transform your ideas into reality.

In the course, you will learn to apply design principles and hand-sewing and construction techniques to make a unique piece of upcycled, sustainable clothing. You will gain the necessary skills to execute your design ideas, based on deconstruction and reconstruction techniques. You leave the course with one or more unique garments created from a single creative concept.
