Zero Waste Pattern Cutting

Varvara Zhemchuzhnikova


“To aim at zero waste is the first responsible step after buying a new piece of fabric to make a garment. With this workshop I started a project “Ready to” where I connect the processes of art and slow fashion: I use around one meter of fabric and print it spontaneously by hand. Then I cut and sew it without creating waste. The patterns and print is inspired by an art work.

This is my way for intuitive art making with a risk of an unknown result, but at the same time with higher level of responsibility in my field of work.”
