The art of draping and upcycling was developed by Christine Mayer from the classic Japanese drapery. It represents a further development of the three-dimensional pattern cutting – working directly on the bust with original materials.
Especially by dealing with recycled materials and old fabrics, this is an inspiring method to directly influence the given materials, structures and the individual fit. The designer becomes a sculptor who develops their creation directly on the bust – in harmony with the materials and body shape.

“Christine Mayer’s most recent collections has been made entirely from recycled fabric with a lot of love. As she puts it, she wants her clothes to ‘embrace the people who wear them’. What we appear to have lost over time is the attachment to and love for our clothing, and through her work Mayer reminds us of the great tenacity of this connection. Christine Mayer is teaching the art of garment upcycling; the creative reuse of worn and used fabrics. She gives people the opportunity and skills to work with old and loved fabrics and to re-imagine them as brand new garments.”

In this 3-part live stream workshop you will learn from Christine how to create wonderful new pieces our of your used garments. Each session will present an Upcycling theme. We start on Sunday, April 19 with upcycling men shirts into a beautiful summer dress.

All what you need is a dress form, a sewing machine and the upcycling material. For the first session we need two men shirts in a nice color combination or one color.


We start every part with a short Kundalini Meditation session, to come together as a group and to open us up for the beautiful creative energy.

The workshop language will be English.
