Make a rebellious fashion outfit using mending and printing with experimental milliner, textile artist and arts activist Kengkeng Watt.
Are you feeling fed up? Fed up of non-stop bad news about warming oceans; wildfires; floods; species going extinct; the cost of living crisis; new oil licenses; racist incidents; wars or corruption?
Come and spend the weekend making a rebellious outfit from reclaimed textiles and express your feelings through creative textile practices with others who are dealing with similar feelings of despair and frustration.
Using mending, patching, repairing and sewing techniques we will make outfits which represent our love and care towards humanity and the planet. Also try your hand at block printing and screen printing protest slogans and designs, and create wearable artworks which call for change!
Choose to sign up to the full weekend or either the Saturday or Sunday.
Attending for the full weekend will allow you more opportunity to explore different techniques. You might print on day one and sew on day two! If you choose to come along for one day, you can either focus on one technique or have a taster of a few. No sewing or printing experience necessary and all beginners and those curious to learn more are welcome.
Snacks and drinks will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
Please note: Our ReMode studio is situated on the second floor and only accessible via stairs. If you have access requirements please leave a comment when booking your place and we can arrange for an alternative location. All sign-ups will be notified if there is a venue change.
