During this workshop, you will be encouraged to stimulate your creativity to make your own one-of-a kind upcycled bouquet! You will be shown a range of embroidery techniques such as lazy daisy, French knots and 3D fabric flowers. You will then get to experiment with these techniques using upcycled materials such as stripes from old T-shirts, yarns from second hand scarves, etc. You will leave the workshop ready to embellish and give a new life to all your old garments, because the most sustainable item is the one you already have!
