Zero Waste Fashion Design with Danielle Elsener

23 February @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join Danielle Elsener for a special workshop exploring her zero-waste fashion design system, A020.

Danielle will share the history behind A020 and how it relates to existing design practices. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about her approach, as well as creating a paper mockette of a zero-waste pattern that you can translate onto fabric at home.

This workshop is aimed at fashion designers with a basic understanding of pattern cutting. You will need A4 paper, tape, a ruler, pencil and scissors.
