In this calm and relaxing group workshop, Nadien invites you to slow down and take pleasure in the joy of creating something with your own hands with some simple equipments. You’ll be introduced to the art of visible mending, and Nadien shares her knowledge and skills on how to repair your favourite piece of clothing with beautiful Sashiko stitching techniques or darning artworks.
This creative workshop is intended as a jumping-off point, to just dive in and have a go. You don’t need any prior sewing experience and all sewing equipment will be provided along with some refreshments. Simply come as you are with what you like to bring, and together, we can dip into the art of slow making.
“When we make time to re-work and mend clothes, we strengthen our connection to the garment and the people we experience and share the creative process with.” – Nadien K – Wild Clothes Alchemy

Nadien K. - Wild Clothes Alchemy was born from a desire to create a sense that each of us can contribute to positive change, a sense of value, and empowerment. With her work, Nadien wants to showcase the nuances of handmade, crafted for the individual, weaving together the history and memories of garments and fabrics. She connects people, and clothes in creative sewing workshops, and re-works garments from already existing materials to break the hegemony of sameness, challenging the system of fast fashion and helping people to work towards a more sustainable wardrobe.
