Levi’s to conduct free denim upcycling workshops in London


London- Levi’s has declared to organize a series of workshops planned to teach the public how to weave baskets from denim leftovers or scraps and make wax crayons using reprocessed indigo ink extracted from the brand’s old jeans.

The workshops are aimed to organize the upcoming exhibition of materials and objects from upcycled denim that will be presented on the show at Levi’s London concept store, Levi’s Haus, between April 20 to May 5.


British educational association Store organized the workshops; the three bookable public workshops and series of school-organized after-school clubs will focus on teaching denim upcycling techniques.

Levi’s workshops will instruct the public on how to weave baskets from denim scraps.

The workshops comprise Indigo Wax Crayon Making, a denim fabric pulp after-school club and Basket Making, which strives to educate audiences to regard the entire lifecycle of Levi’s denim and other consumer goods.

The Basket Making Course from Denim aims to run on Saturday, April 23, from 2 pm to 5 pm. It will elaborate on the participant’s specific weaving techniques and how to rebuild denim, resulting in an original basket design that they can take home with them.

The workshop will also be accompanied by a Maker’s Manual and a How-To Video, so participants and the wider public can recreate the baskets at home using an old pair of Levi’s.

The course will give participants a chance to learn about silicone mould making, crayon making and a new lifecycle of indigo. It takes place on Saturday, April 30, from 11 am to 2 pm and from 3 pm to 6 pm.


“The British Council is the UK’s cultural relations organization, and the work of the Architecture Design and Fashion programme seeks to address today’s global challenges by connecting designers and design communities by exploring the social and cultural value of a wide range of design disciplines,” said director of Architecture Design and Fashion at the British Council, Sevra Davis.
