MAKE – Reture Workshop with Joao Maraschin

Saturday, September 25th 2.30-4.00pm

In association with RETURE, watch and learn how to upcycle your own preloved garments through creative customisation with London-based Brazilian designer Joao Maraschin. This workshop will focus on how to upcycle anything using knitwear techniques, transforming an old item into an exciting new garment.

Joao Maraschin
Launched in 2020, Joao Maraschin’s eponymous brand places community and craftsmanship at the centre of the their practices and values. The ethos is based on supporting and preserving handmade techniques like crochet and embroidery, as well as working with new discoveries in raw materials, looking at circularity, waste, repurposing and human centred design.

RETURE is a digital platform offering both a bespoke upcycling service, enabling clients to connect and collaborate with world-class designers to revive their preloved garments, and an online boutique where shoppers can buy upcycled fashion and accessories from cutting-edge, sustainably driven design talents.
