Almost a third (26%) of the average Briton’s garments have not been worn in the last year. Why not dig out those clothes lurking at the back of your wardrobe, bring them to Swish & Style and swap them for a new outfit for this year’s festivities? There will be two events taking place at artsdepot in Barnet, on 14 December 2019 and another on 15 February 2020.
Bring up to fifteen items; for each item you bring, you will be given a token that you can exchange for another garment from someone else.
The events will include workshops where you can learn skills to take home and use on your clothes again. The workshop at this event will be upcycling and boro with Fast Fashion Therapy.
Workshops at swishing events across north London will include upcycling, screen printing, repair, fabric dyeing, and Japanese techniques such as boro. There will be ONE workshop per event, so check the full listing to see if there are any other events you’d like to attend.
Workshop spaces are free but limited, so please sign up on Eventbrite to help us to estimate numbers. If you do not sign up, you may not get a space on the day.
