Sustainable Living and "Free-Shop" at The ArcanStone
We are trying once more! Our last Sustainable living event was unfortunately disrupted by the typhoon, and therefore we never got to do any of the activities we had been looking so much forward to! So - we try again :)
In collaboration with Fashion Revolution Vietnam
Why not spend your Sunday in great company, being creative AND working towards sustainability? Sunday the 25th we invite to a wonderful day with:
♻ A Free-shop ♻
One (wo)mans trash, another (wo)mans treasure!
Let’s be honest. We all have some stuff at home that we don’t need. And maybe it's not in a condition to sell, or maybe you just don’t have the time or energy to organize doing so.
Why not give it up to someone who will appreciate it? or maybe turn it into something different yourself?
The ArcanStone opens for a “Free-shop”. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, it means you can bring what you have and take what you want of clothes, shoes, books etc.
It all depends on the concept of karma, give what you have - take what you need: don’t be greedy! ;)
Everything left behind will be given to charity 🤗
♻ T-Shirt Upcycling with Elena' Fashion Design Workshop ♻
Re-fashioning clothes is a great way to renew and spice up your wardrobe! Not to mention how much fun you will have creating stylish and flattering garments!
During 2 hours of “T-shirt re-fashioning workshop” you will learn techniques, explore tips and tricks to re-creating t-shirts.
Garment re-creating or in other words garment up-cycling is a conscious process of transforming old clothes into a new by adding more aesthetic value to it. By doing so you will give another life to your beloved tees!
What to bring?
Your old t-shirts or the new ones ( Maybe you'll find some in the Free-shop ;) )
Tools and all additional necessary materials, threads, needles, etc. will be provided!
♻ It's almost Christmas - Fashion Revolution Talk ♻
Fashion Revolution will share how we can consume fashion items in a more responsible way, and suggest tips on how to prepare for / slow down before the frenzy Christmas season ahead.
♻ Creative Corner ♻
Turn old material like bedsheets into brand new clothing, plastic bottles into bracelets or give your old clothing new life - maybe as something else! Feel free to bring any material you have for yourself or for others, and let's see what we can create!
♻ And more ♻
Let's try to battle over-consumerism and work toward sustainable living together ♻🤗
