Textile repair, repurposing and upcycling - a new online group to share ideas and techniques and to find out 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.

Our first event will be focussed on Jeans - mending, repurposing and generally understanding a bit more about what's hot and what's not in the world of denim...

These events are inspired by our #TextileTransformation project, hosted by Making Space and supported by Hampshire County Council's waste minimisation fund.

Bring your sewing or upcycling project to share, ask for advice or just join to learn and be inspired by others. Our first session on Tuesday 26 January will be focussed in Jeans. After that the sessions will run fortnightly until the end of March.
