ReMode Make ReDress was a major two year project funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.

The project set out to redress the balance of influence – and on a very practical level, to reduce textile waste in our communities.  Our aim was to empower young people and the wider community in Lochwinnoch and Paisley 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 and events.

We had plans in place for a busy two year programme of workshops, events and outreach activities. Little did we know what the two years ahead had in store. Two changes of premises and a worldwide pandemic were certainly not eventualities we had considered. But we’re really proud of how we adapted and what we achieved over the course of the programme.
