The Sustainable Fashion Workshop takes participants through the 90-minute process of obtaining dyes through natural, raw materials, and using these dyes to design and repurpose old clothing. With workshop trainers guiding participants through the intricate dye extraction process, each individual will get to handle raw natural materials such as dragon fruit peel, sandalwood, turmeric, pandan leaves, and ixora flowers, as well as learn how to create a dye bath using the materials.

Free to unleash their creativity, participants can use the obtained dyes to design their old clothing in any manner they prefer. The workshop allows each individual to experience what it feels like to repurpose an article of clothing and give it new life.
