Workshop Information

Course outline

Upcycling plays a huge part in Jose Hendo’s ‘Eco-Sustainable by Design’ ethos. Upcycling simply means reusing discarded objects to create new products with a higher value. Now that wearing face masks is so necessary, Jose wants to encourage people to reuse items they already have to make washable masks rather than buying disposable ones – together making a difference for each other and the environment.

Jose Hendo is a Ugandan-born British eco-sustainable designer who takes a fresh approach to fashion design, challenging the throwaway culture. Founder of the José Hendo brand, Bark To The Roots (B2TR) initiative and the R^3 Campaign, Jose Hendo has won multiple awards. She promotes the use of organic, eco- textiles and recycled materials to create unique – often avant-garde -garments, and accessories for both women and men. She supports ethical values and the environment.
