Future Fashion Now

23 May

World Environment Day is coming up on the 5th of June, and to celebrate, the good people at the City of Port Phillip are putting on a little do!

Future Fashion Now is a showcase of Melbourne fashion designers and crafty-persons that apply environmental or social sustainability principles to their creations. It’s a free event held at the St Kilda Town Hall on Friday 3 June 4.00-7.30pm. 

You can bring along clothes to swap.  And learn how to: make gorgeous jewellery from old/broken pieces (The Treasury) transform worn t-shirts into accessories; learn origami using old magazines; make a bolero from old jumpers; manipulate fabric on old garments for new effects; make sock monkeys, dolls and baskets from reused materials; and learn to knit.

If you’re planning on coming, make sure you say hi, and join me for a quick-fix. The sessions are 20 mins each – a good chance to get an idea of what The Treasury is all about.

Speaking of The Treasury, I have now added a new ‘page’ to this blog (the link is top-right on this page), with dates for the rest of the year. Spaces fill up quickly as soon as the word gets out, so if you’re thinking of joining us for a workshop, now is the time to book!


The Repair Workshops – Get Involved!

16 May

Wow, things are moving so quickly with The Repair Workshops – I feel like it was just yesterday I was dreaming of the possibility of putting on a massive, all-in version of The Treasury. And here it is, we’ve booked our venue, we’ve set the dates, we’ve got an amazing group of artists and technicians collaborating with us, and we’re now ready for you to REGISTER your broken items to bring along and get fixed!     –    My how time flies!

The Repair Workshops – A two-day open exploration into the idea of ‘repair’, inviting the public to bring along broken items to fix and re-create into something useful and possibly wonderful. Come and see us on the 30th and 31st of July at Donkey Wheel House, as part of the State of Design Festival 2011.
