Join the designer Charlotte Nilsen at Redesign Café!

With a playful approach to design, Charlotte Nilsen invites you to DIY, do it yourself , and renew your old clothing wardrobe without buying anything new. A part of Nilsen’s agenda is to be creative and playful with your old clothes, but also strengthen the awareness of one`s consumer role and how to reuse instead of buying new.

During the festival, Charlotte Nilsen offers three different workshops at Fretex Kirkenes:

5th of Feb: Open workshop for youth and adults. Course 1: Redesign your old t-shirts into a top, skirt or dress. Bring 3-5 t-shirts, we cut and sew and make them new!

5th of Feb: Open workshop for youth and adults. Course 2: Redesign your own Poncho. Bring your old jacket, sweater or shirt. We cut it to desired length and add yarn threads. 1,2,3, your very own home made poncho!

6-7th of Feb: Open workshop for adults. Two-day course. Bring old clothes that need a make over. Throughout this two-day course we make two items each, a dress, a pair of pants, a jacket or perhaps a new blouse? The course starts with an introduction about redesigning by Charlotte Nilsen. Each participant gets individual following up throughout the course, both on the creative and technical part.
