A big thank you to all the participants from yesterday’s workshop, we can't wait to share with you all some photos of “second-life” items and present to you the creatives responsible for them.
Yesterday successfully started Art of Repair, a cycle of free workshops on repairing and upcycling for residents in Florence. This is an initial venture of combining local artists and artisans into the Circular Economy by tiche synergia in collaboration with Creative People in Florence. The purpose is to introduce the participants to the principles of the Circular Economy and allow them to give a second life to worn-out or broken personal objects through artistic intervention. In the first workshop, the textile artist Margherita Pandolfini of La Serra MK Atelier thoughtfully conducted participants in the transformation of their old and faded garments and home furnishings with their own hands, by applying painting and printing techniques.
I thank Dani Baldo, Diego De Franchis, and Milena Kozić for their great teamwork and efforts to make this initiative come true.
