Workshop on upcycling Fabric waste
Eco Club of Lady Irwin College, in collaboration with Ms. Rupal Jain, Ms. Vridhi Grover and Ms. Darshana Tikmani organised a workshop “Trash to Treasure” on 5th of December 2020. As we all know that textile waste is one of the root causes of pollution today as it takes many years to decompose. It is either burnt or thrown away which creates a lot of destruction in the society. Keeping this in mind, the workshop conducted, was about Upcycling of Fabric Waste and its different techniques. The event was graced by Dr. Sushma Goel, Dr. Deepali Rastogi and Mr. Rajneesh Dwevedi, the Staff Advisors of Eco Club.
Natasha Bhasin, Secretary of Eco Club moderated the session which started with Ms. Rupal Jain explaining about upcycling and different ways to upcycle waste materials then Ms. Darshana, Ms. Rupal and Ms. Vridhi showed various tips and techniques to make coasters, key chains and some amazing decorations that can be used during Christmas. Further, they also showed and taught how to make floral hangings, buntings and beautiful puffed earnings of different shapes and sizes. Everything was very attractive, upcycled and helpful at the same time. The session was fun – learning which ended with Q/A round and with the Vote of Thanks by Ms. Pavitra Khandelwal, President of Eco Club.
