Patchwork Memory Cushion Workshop – POSTPONED
Time & Place
About The Event
Bring up to nine items of clothing to which you have a particular emotional attachment and want to keep, but will no longer be worn, and in three hours transform them into a Patchwork Memory Cushion to cherish forever, or give as a gift. Cushion pads are available to buy at additional cost. Confident hand sewing skills required.
The emotions associated with our clothing are varied. Clothing isn't just a product, it also acts as a reminder of people and places. We keep garments that will never be worn again, but can't bring ourselves to part with them. From newborn baby clothing to granddad's jumpers: garments with significant sentimental value tell a story. We'd love to hear yours.
Upcycle Fashion deliver sustainable fashion workshops and talks to keep clothing in your life and out of landfill.
This event takes place in Fashion Revolution Week 2019, questioning who makes our clothing, and engaging citizens with actions to move towards a better, more sustainable fashion industry.
By pre-paid ticket only. Cost: £15 for members, £18 for non members.
Includes tea and coffee on arrival and mid-session.
