MU Community

MU Community facilitates the exchange of expertise between our participants and locals. We stimulate community engagement by sharing skills with each other. We currently offer hands-on making of upcycled clothes and graphic design workshops.

Remember those clothes at the back of the closet which you don’t really like or just don’t wear anymore? Bring them over and we will help you turn them into a new garment. During a fun afternoon, you will learn simple techniques in a step-by-step approach to give old clothes a new life. 

Material: clothes, you can bring your own or use the ones present. No sewing skills needed.

Location: Makers Unite, Notweg 38, Amsterdam
