Event description
Slow fashion practitioner Jane Milburn discusses regenerative ways of dressing that don’t involve buying new clothes.

About this Event

We need to talk about clothes.

They contribute 10 percent of our carbon footprint and two-thirds are synthetic fibres shedding microplastic particles into our oceans.

Jane shares a Slow Clothing Manifesto of actions and choices: think, natural, quality, local, few, care, make, revive, adapt and salvage. This hands-on workshop will focus on liberating dormant clothing from your wardrobe or op-shop, using mending and upcycling techniques to create individual, sustainable style. Bring a few garments you love but aren’t wearing and we discuss upcycling options then do what we can within the timeframe. Also bring an old t-shirt and we show you how to turn it into yarn for use in accessories, garden or home.

How does it tie into sustainability?

It includes strategies for reusing and reducing textile waste, and raises awareness about plastic in clothes .
