Fashion, textile & rice waste

Fashion, textile & rice waste

The project “Agricultural waste as raw textile and design material in Kochani” is still ongoing! The young participants finished their tasks hard and invested. Their following accomplishments were the two new workshops under the mentorship of Irina Tosheva.

According to the theoretical teaching from the last workshop, the participants were already familiar with the shibori dyeing technique, so they further strengthened their abilities this time. This Japanese technique allowed them to show their creativity and uniqueness and to remember sustainable dyeing.

During the second workshop, students from the primary school “Malina Popivanova” from Kochani managed to learn something new and build on the already acquired knowledge. Irina Tosheva, once more as the workshop mentor, introduced them to creating designs from recycled material. The youngsters wove their fabrics from rice waste, or more precisely, rice straw.

Thanks to the participants and the attention they pay to their work, we have left behind two more successful educational workshops!

Educational activities for youth are supported by the project @obrazovanie_za_vrabotuvanje, a Swiss government supported project.

The project is carried out by the Macedonian Fashion Association and the Association of Citizens for Cultural and Artistic Activities Odonata. The project is implemented within the framework of the Regional Program for Local Democracy in the Western Balkans 2 – ReLOaD2 is financed by the Delegation of the European Union, Skopje, and it is implemented by the UNDP MK.
