Make{able} @ MADE IN KALLIO

This years summer edition of Make{able} was successfully facilitated at a Helsinki co-working space: ‘Made in Kallio’. We were happy to see such a great interest in our half-way shorts workshop. Together with about 20 participants we made colourful and summerish shorts. Thank you all for joining, it was great fun!!

We are looking forward to our follow-up workshop in the 13th of August at the same place. We keep you posted on our upcoming events page

Thanks to Daniel Morales we also have a great video showing the process of making shorts from picking the right fabric till wearing the finished piece.

Below are some impressions captured during the workshop.

Make{able} @ MoA


Thanks to all our participants and the great workshop space provided by MoA – Masters of Aalto, we could facilitate a successful workshop on Half-way Tunics last Wednesday 8th of May. All together we had 17 participants who were all able to sew a unique tunic, scarf or similar item. Team Make{able} says thanks to all of you, and please let us know if you have thoughts or ideas for what and where you would like to have another Make{able} workshop. Looking forward to your comments. 🙂

Thanks to all our participants of the first workshop organized on Saturday 26th January 2012.

We had a great time sewing, making and learning from each other. The results were great and we hope that you enjoyed the process as well as the results as much as we did. Together we created new mittens from discared pullovers or similar. For everyone who is interested in trying the same, we will facilitate another workshop in the end of February, so keep on checking our blog.
