About the Instructor
This is an introductory class to upcycling your clothes. Bring one or two old garments and explore different techniques to breathe new life into them. Eco-designer Agatha will share with you her passion for upcycling clothes, why it is important, and how to make your clothes last longer.
Agatha is an eco designer and the founder of Green Issues by Agy.
Having been in the environmental sector for over 10 years, she is an advocate of sustainable fashion, including the upcycling of post-consumer garments and textile waste. She is also passionate about the “Mend and Make Do” movement.
When she is not reconstructing her clothes and experimenting with sewable electronics, she is busy sharing fabric hacking tips on her blog and at workshops
