Make your own rucksack at my Upcycling Workshop at the Urban Makers Pop- up Shop in Shoreditch!
You’ll come home with a very unique bag made from discarded denim and old jeans. Take some time out from your busy schedule, bring some friends and get involved in some good old sewing. Simply bring along one or two old pairs of jeans or similar fabrics that you like to use. You won’t need any prior experience as we’ll go through the whole process together step by step.
Sewing machines, haberdasheries and denim fabric will be provided.
If you have any questions feel free to get in touch.
I look forward to seeing you at my workshop!
About Nadien Klages
It all started when I organised our wardrobe at home and the idea came up to make something new out of the discarded clothes, some of whom were full of stories and memories which would always keep me from throwing them out. So I sewed the first pair of trousers for my little one out of my boyfriend’s old shirt. With this first design in hand, I decided to offer an upcycling service for parents that will turn their old favourite clothes into a new piece for their child, which will carry its very special own story.
My ready-to-wear collection for children has since expanded to a rucksack collection for both kids and adults crafted from discarded fabric and cork. More recently, I’ve started to design and make colourful hand-dyed cork bags and purses.
