Being an artist all of my life I realise that creating and playing with materials is a fun and powerful process of relaxation and self-expression. I dedicate part of my time to people, who like to learn how to create accessories and are open to the idea of a sustainable living and fashion.

 

I conduct a series of sustainable workshops that are influenced by the idea of circular living, recycling and how to incorporate them into our lives and most specifically into the fashion products we use.

 

Although for us living sustainable is a challenge, it gives us the opportunities of developing our skills or learning new ones, and of course – participating in the effort for a better environment.

 

If you are inspired by the idea of having fun, while discovering a new functionality for something old by transforming it and creating something beautiful and unique – feel free to contact me for more information.

BOOST UP THE OLD CLOTHES

Even when clothing is produced as environmentally friendly as possible – it is only truly sustainable if it is worn for a long time. The logic is simple: When a piece of clothing is worn longer, fewer clothes are produced and less are thrown away.

 

Want to give your old clothes a second chance? 

 

Bring something from your wardrobe or from a second hand store, and the theatre costume maker and artist Kalina Todorova will show you how to transform it not only into something wearable, but also to a unique piece of art! 

It is a three-part workshop. Each part shows a different repair technique in line with the new sustainable repair trends:

 

 1.  Application techniques

 2. Turn your old sweater into beautiful gloves, scarf or hat.

 3. Create your own style of shirt or sweater by combining a few items of clothing.
