Unwanted Project: Creative Upcycling for Fashion and More

How might we reimagine the material world with hands-on creation and upcycling the creative process? Through this workshop, participants will experience designing and creating functional objects including light, bags and accessories with PVC pipe, which is a normal urban disposal and construction material.

This material couldn’t be easily recycled, which means that it will end up being a part of landfill. Thus, we created this workshop to reimagine the value of urban objects and explore the potentials of creation. Given a second life and a twist of the material functionality and aesthetics, the objects we invite all the participants to create will be back to being a part of our everyday life.

In this workshop, the participants will get inspired by upcycling design in the field of fashion and industrial design, as well as experience the upcycling design process with hands-on process. Makerspace experience is preferred but not required.
