The Walk in Wardrobe is an interactive experience for young people to discover how our clothes are made and the impact of fast fashion, as well as exploring different ways to take action and make a difference.
Stepping inside the Walk in Wardrobe, a variety of interactive zones will allow visitors to discover the impacts of clothing on people and the planet, get inspired by local groups and campaigns and try out alternatives like repair, upcycling, styling and swapping for themselves.
We’re looking for volunteers to help us to develop, set up and run the Walk In Wardrobe. By volunteering at Walk In Wardrobe not only will you help us help your community to find out more about sustainable fashion but you could also gain skills in event planning and management, sewing and DIY, research, talking to and teaching the public and working with others.
