At ReMode we aim to raise awareness of the environmental impact of the textiles industry, and furnish young people and the wider community with the knowledge and practical skills needed to reduce this impact.
We operate a MakeSpace in Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, and a shop selling remoded and vintage clothing based at the University of the West of Scotland in Paisley.
We run a programme of workshops and events for ages 11 up to adult, from classes in upcycling and clothing alteration, natural dyes, and screen printing to hands-on learning from local artists and makers. You can find out more about our programme of events here.
Both our venues serve as learning hubs where local communities can access information about climate change and the action that they can take to tackle it.
In April 2019 we begin a new two year project : ReMode Make ReDress.
To undertake this project we have been awarded a grant of £263,061.87 from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund
ReMode Make ReDress will be run by ReMode Renfrewshire CIC and will empower young people and wider communities of Renfrewshire’s outlying villages, Paisley, Ferguslie Park, and Foxbar to take an active role in combating the environmental impact of the fashion and textile industries, through learning mend and adapt skills, taking part in volunteering, our swishes, film screenings and other sociable gatherings.
