Concept description

My concept and offer are based on conscious consumption and recycling pieces of fabrics into a designer bag. (see the video presentation) The participants will be able to make the bag with their own leftover fabrics or Aurelia will provide it. The participant will be actively involved in the whole process.
The participant will be able to cut, assemble and use the patterns, tools, and professional machines in the workshop under Aurelia´s guidance.
Aurelia will also provide leftovers if needed so that the experience is complete, and enriching for the participant, who will go through the whole process of creating the designer bag and raising awareness of slow fashion, recycling & upcycling leftovers. Small reel videos (Instagram) and photos will be made during the process to show the diversity and beauty of all the designer bags made. All levels are welcome to apply, beginners too especially because Aurelia will be permanently at their side to help them with the realization.
This creative work also aims to increase the value self-esteem and confidence of the participants who will be proud of their creation and their commitment, contribution to circular consumption.
The duration of the workshop will be 2h, 3 participants at a time will be accepted 2 times per day from the 14th to 19th of March, which represents a total of 36 participants for the week, a Calendar registration system will be set up so that participants can book their place.
