Upcycling Workshop with designer Thimm Hoth


Every year, fast-fashion companies produce tons of clothing which are disposed of after only one year, once worn or even unused. In the two-day workshop with designer Thimm Hoth, you can design new garments from such used clothing, redesigned according to your wishes. Under professional guidance you can change them and create a completely new one out of two pieces, for example. A jacket or dress can be turned into a skirt or a shirt into a shirt, for example.

  • Choose from a colorful pool of used clothes and redesign them into a new garment of your choice or bring your own materials.
  • No previous knowledge required: cutting, spinning together, sewing: You develop your own design with our help.
  • In the end you will have individual, unique pieces that save resources and don’t end up in the trash.
