2. Design a silhouette: Upcycling Works
Design a statement piece in patchwork look that works.
Please select a profession for your design. The design should best meet the functional requirements of this profession.
When choosing possible materials from fleece to canvas you can use the online shop www.engelbert-strauss.de as a guideline.
When upcycling, the craftsmanship is important, whether overlock, lap or quilted seam.
The drawing of a silhouette should be submitted. It is up to you whether it is a free illustration and/or technical drawing.
At the workshop in Berlin, the nominees have the opportunity to choose from leftover materials for the realisation.
