Join Corinna Francavilla, the founder of independent brand NINA, for a fun, creative upcycling workshop!
In this unique workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to recreate one of NINA’s most popular tops using a preloved tea towel and repurposed cotton tapes. With a carefully curated selection of vintage materials provided, Corinna will expertly guide you through each step of the process, regardless of your sewing experience. This hands-on session offers a fun and accessible way to learn new skills, repurpose materials, and come away with a beautiful top that you’ve crafted yourself.
