We are very excited to be launching a new collaborative project later in the Spring. This will be hosted by myself along with The Local Folk in Tonedale and Joanna of Slow and Circular. We have a series of seasonal workshops planned which will offer participants a range of tools for creating a slow fashion wardrobe. This will include style tips, how to carry out a responsible wardrobe detox, conscious consumerism, hand stitching and mending skills and using natural dye to support upcycling projects.
Places will be bookable via The Local Folk here.
Downloadable resources to support the project will also be available to participants and to order through our website shop.
Here is what you can expect from our Spring workshop day, taking place on Sunday 21st May 10-4pm with the theme 'Recognition, Responsibility and the Regenerative Wardrobe' where we will be welcoming Becky Barnes, an award-winning sustainable stylist. Becky is a lover of slow fashion and helping others to create an authentic, signature style which impacts positively on both themselves and the planet.
During the morning's practical session, we will be offering some tools to help you build a responsible and regenerative wardrobe you will love. A mix of practical activities and online resources will provide you with insight into understanding your style personality, how to carry out a responsible wardrobe detox, deepen the relationship with what you already own and to fill any gaps in our collections in a more sustainable way.
Last, but not least, Joanna from Slow and Circular will talk about how clothes are linked to climate change and what we, as consumers, can do to make a positive change in the world. We’ll delve into behind the scenes of the fashion industry to discover how it impacts us, the environment and others around the world. Please join us to gain a useful knowledge to grow a better understanding of your consumption habits.
Workshops will be £65 for the day and can be booked here via The Local Folk.
