STITCHED UP’S TEXTILE WASTE LAB

Join us for an engaging afternoon exploring the climate impact of clothing and textiles and working together to identify actionable community solutions.

After a whistlestop tour of the scale of clothing and textiles’ impact on the climate, we’ll dive straight into exploring the properties of different textiles that typically get sent to landfill, and see some great examples of community-level textile reuse and repurposing.

Choosing a few materials as a starting point, we’ll work together in small teams to put forward the best idea for repurposing or reusing these materials within our communities, and look at how some of these ideas could be put into action.

Skills: Learn how to identify different fabric types and their properties, and test your creative and problem solving skills.

Level: Beginner, suitable for age 12+ (under 16s must be accompanies by an adult)

Bring: Just yourself, and your textile reuse and upcycling ideas!

This event is part of GMCVOs Just Transition Green Week of Action.
