Sustainable Fashion: Making Clothes from Reused Materials

While fast fashion seems to be the most popular choice for how we shop and clothe ourselves, it can also contribute to increasing amounts of waste, cut into the sustainability of materials, and contribute to unethical production and labour practices. These are areas of focus for UK artist and designer Eliza Collin, as her work is concerned with issues surrounding production in relation to materials and people.

Her most recent collection consisted entirely of clothes up-cycled from one person’s wardrobe. Join her in a 2 hour workshop to explore the vast issue of sustainability on a personal and cultural level, and participate in a collective exercise of upcycling and alternative ways of making clothes from reused materials. Participants need to bring with them one used (but hopefully clean) garment or textile piece which will be used as material in the workshop.

Workshop is free, on a first-come-first-served basis up to 15 pax.

This workshop is presented in collaboration with the British Council Malaysia, and is hosted by Biji.Biji Ethical Fashion.
