In the first quarter of 2021 we are running some new events online – follow us on EventBrite to find out more.
Our first event is a new online group to share ideas and techniques around textile repair and why it matters. Join Planet Aware and friends at these informal sessions to connect anyone in the Solent and Isle of Wight area who is interested in textile upcycling and repair and learn a bit more about the relationship between fashion and the environment. We will be curating an evening of video clips, short talks in between sharing examples of great upcycling and repair. Bring your sewing or upcycling project to share, ask for advice or just join to learn and be inspired by others. While each event will have a focus on a garment or technique there will be lots of opportunities to share what you have been doing, ask for advice or generally share useful info.
Sew and Tell
Our second event series is The Plastic Files – looking at the problem of waste and consumption locally.
Sign up for the first event in this series below which looks at the challenge of the rise of takeaways during the pandemic and the impact this is having on our local environment.
