Another creative week end, teaching and exploring the Zero Waste Design Concept, collaborating with Aurore Thibout for these Origami Bag Workshops in London Fields. We shared a nice vegeterian lunch and enjoyed delicious mince pies with mulled wine after the intensive working day. Very well done to all the participants and especially to those who used the sewing machine for the first time!

Zero Waste Workshops - Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd September

London Design Festival 2018.

'Thibout and Teillet are giving two workshops in Zero Waste fashion techniques, which are aimed towards those who have an interest in creative upcycling. No prior experience is necessary and all materials are provided. The workshops focus on exploring the concept of Zero Waste pattern cutting, reusing handpicked vintage furnishing textiles to create a bespoke bag and a dress. Thibout and Teillet's programme does not only concentrate on transmitting skills and techniques; they also encourage an awareness in participants of a more ethical and sustainable fashion system, inspired by their own design work'.
