Repair, Remake and / or Swap Workshop

20th August 2016 at CERES

RRS Workshop FacebookEventClothing waste is a big problem, in part created by fast fashion and in part by our conditioning to ignore the vast numbers of items forgotten in our wardrobes, drawers, lofts, basements, gym bags… and to keep on buying.

And then there is our attachment to certain pieces that, despite changes in fashion, moth holes or the attraction of the new, we can’t bear to throw away.

This event is a meeting place for our loved yet neglected clothing to be repaired, re-imagined, remade or swapped. Please bring up to 10 items to swap and 1 pre-loved item to talk about ways of fixing, remaking or redesigning.

You can…

Repair – consider visible mending, “embroiderepair” and look at how you could darn a hole, stitch a tear or patch and repair.

Remake – Get advice on how to reimagine and redefine a piece, transforming it into something different and completely original.

Swap – trade your unwanted clothing/bags/shoes for others in the clothing swap.
