SO MACHINE: TIE-DYE FESTIVAL GEAR

Thursday July 26, 11.00-16.00 (at Lochwinnoch Parish Church). Ages 11-18.

SO MACHINE is ReMode’s ongoing skatewear, boards and music project. At this extra special one-off session, we’re going to be creating tie-dye t-shirts and hoodies (perfect festival gear), using naturally-occurring dyes found in the Scottish countryside – cochineal and woad. If you’ve got a hoodie or t-shirt you particularly want to tie-dye, please bring it along with you; we’ll have a supply on hand during the day too.

Previous SO MACHINE workshops have included boards and skatewear screen printing, and creating your own soundsystem/learning to DJ. However, this workshop is open to everyone aged 11-18, not just people who have attended previous sessions.

FIDDLE & FIX

Wednesday 18 July, 19.00-21.00 (at the ReMode MakeSpace). Ages 16+

Asses, repair, revive! Our homes are often filled with broken stuff – irons, phones, chairs, toys, tools, gadgets. The kind of stuff you can’t bring yourself to throw out because it you feel kind of guilty about contributing to the 50 million tonnes of redundant items which are thrown into UK landfill sites every year. This workshop will be your dream come true! Bring along something which is broken and our experienced facilitators will work through the process of assessment, repairing, replacing, reviving…or scrapping! Obviously not everything will go home working again, but in the meantime you will have learned some basic mend techniques and had a whole lot of fixing fun! Book your place here. 

SOUNDSYSTEMS

17th April – 19th June, McKillop Institute, Lochwinnoch

A ten week project working with young people to design, built and operate their own 12 volt, bike-transported soundsystem.
