Share

The Thrift nā€™ Turn workshop conducted by Ms Amrita Ramesh, founder of moksha.blr, and a PES alumnus featured hands-on demos on up-cycling clothes. She outlined the environmental and socio-economic perils due to the fast fashion industry. The workshop recommended tips and tricks to maintain clothes, maximise their use and up-cycle existing clothes into new and fresh pieces. Methods to remove various stains were suggested. The importance and effectiveness of thrifting were also described at length. Up-cycling ideas like tie-dying, painting, cropping, hemming and bleach-dying were explained. This was followed by a hands-on demonstration of some popular styles of embroidery and patchwork. The Change Makers Society organised the Thrift n Turn workshop on Oct 30, 2020.
