 THE PHILOSOPHY OF UPCYCLING with Barley Massey at 7pm, Friday 25th January, New Acropolis, 19 Compton Terrace, Islington N1 2UN (£5 / £3 Concession)

I am delighted to be offering a lively and practical talk that connects my own and other modern day textile upcyclists practises to timeless and philosophical ideas of transformation and alchemy. During the talk there will also be an opportunity to stitch a simple embroidered denim patch that you can add to an item of clothing at home to embellish or mend a hole. This activity is inspired by the Japanese mending techniques of ‘Sashiko’ & ‘Boro’, one of the sources of inspiration discussed in the talk. To book your place:  http://www.newacropolisuk.org/home.php
