Upcycling Plastics Keyring-Making Workshop

Sunday 28th April 2019, 14:00 — 16:00

How do we change our mindset towards waste in fashion – from clothing to its accessories?

Join upcycling bag company Rehandle as they invite you to consider the material we often discard as waste: food market bags! From colour to messaging, every food market in London produces unique designs which can be repurposed into new items, making a waste-free and fashion statement.

Come learn about how we can design in a circular way to eliminate waste and upcycle it into new products. Pick and design your own keyring to have it custom-made!

Rehandle is a London based bag company, that creates sustainable, functional, everyday necessities. Noticing that food markets across the UK send masses of plastic sacks to landfill, they source this durable, unique material, up-cycle it and give this plastic a second life. Rehandle’s mission is to create sustainable, wearable solutions to plastic waste disposal.

This event is part of Progress to Process: Interwoven, a weekend festival which explores how textile innovation intersects with design and activism to create sustainable change within the fashion industry and beyond.
