Fashion Revolution Week takes place around the anniversary of the tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse, which claimed the lives of over 1100 workers and injured 2500 others in late April 2013.
Since then, campaign weeks have been held worldwide under the motto "Who made my clothes? Now in over 100 countries and since 2016 also in Switzerland.
Repairing and upgrading with needle and thread:
As part of the Fashion Revolution Week in Basel, we offer an upcycling workshop together with the Institute for Textile Research. We change and personalize with simple hand movements garments that have become old and breathe new life into them. You have the opportunity to give them a new meaning by embroidering the lining of your jacket, visibly mending the hole in your favorite pants or writing a statement on your sweater with yarn. Expand the story of your garment with a custom pattern, saying or image. Visible mending offers an opportunity to get creative with your own wardrobe and save resources. You'll learn simple embroidery stitches in this workshop to visibly patch holes in your cherished clothes with colored threads and eye-catching patches, or to jazz up stains.
Workshop for adults:
Bring: Old clothes with holes, stains or something you just want to spice up. No previous experience is necessary.
