I recently collaborated on a project with esa New York to do an upcycle workshop for FIT's Sustainability Awareness Week! My first encounter with esa New York was at their Do + Brew event in 2019. There was a clothing swap, mending station and natural dyeing station for the attendees to upgrade their new finds. From then on I stayed in contact with one of the co-founders, Willa Tsokanis!

In the workshop I describe the importance and craft of upcycling, give advice for identifying materials that can be upcycled, and take the audience through a short upcycling tutorial.
