ECHOES WORKSHOP | Fashion Sustainability & Up-Cycling

Romina Karamanea Fashion School and Kilo- Shop partnered up with the Aegean Film Festival to show you through a fun workshop how you can up-cycle and transform your clothes in easy and creative ways!

Join us and under Romina’s instructions we will make a completely new shirt that you will, of course, get to keep. We will play with the practices of slashing and knotting and then use tie- dye or stencil to give your new shirt a one- of- a- kind, colourful identity completely unique to your style.

The workshop is open to everyone and the practices are safe and fun for children, as well. (limited capacity)
