Fashion Revolution: Sustainable Design Workshop Series


This event will be held at Charlie's Last Stand (cnr Beardy and Jessie Streets)

The Fashion Revolution is a global movement that promotes transparency, ethical practice and sustainability throughout the fashion industry. The movement aims to show that change is possible and encourages those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.

Fashion Revolution Week runs from the 23rd to 29th of April, a week where consumers and brands alike, are encouraged to think about and ask, who made my clothes?

In Response to Fashion Revolution Week, The Habadashery Club is hosting a series of hands-on, introductory workshops. These workshops focus on sustainable design ideas to encourage a more conscious approach to consuming fashion and textiles. 


Workshop Schedule:

12:00pm Information session on ‘Intro to Fashion Revolution’ and the fashion industry's impact on the environment. 

12:30pm How to use natural based dyes. Dying using natural bits and pieces from within our backyards.

1:30pm How to use patching, embroidery and appliqué to mend clothes and give new life to an old garment. 

2:30pm information session for those wanting to learn the basics of sewing. 

3:30pm Clothes Swap (going to be super fun - keep a look out for more info about this soon!)

* All workshops are walk-in based and no bookings are required. 
* There is no cost to take part, although a gold coin donation would be appreciated to cover basic admin costs. 
* All workshops are on an introductory level, but we would love as many people as possible to get amongst this!
* As the workshops are being held at Charlie's Last Stand, this is an 18+ event.

We are going to wrap up the day with a fun evening at Charlie's Last Stand - More details about this as we approach the date.
