Create your custom football jersey using discarded materials with designer Priya Ahluwalia!

Under the guidance of designer Priya Ahluwalia participants will learn how to create a custom football jersey using discarded/unwanted materials. They will also acquire hacks and techniques for transforming old garments into new kit for teams and communities.

This workshop will help participants get in touch with their own creative expression and will offer an opportunity to try out different DIY techniques to inspire new ways of thinking. Alongside the remanufacturing there will also be the chance to screen-print and take away posters after the session.
