Refashion Rubbish + Restyle Clothing at the BYC
Hi, as you may know, Remade in Brighton are planning a series of workshops with the Brighton Youth Centre (BYC) on Edward street, starting on Wednesday’s in April. The upcoming, junk to funk, restyle clothing and remaking rubbish programme has been enabled by local council funding.
The workshops will provide young people, between the ages of thirteen and nineteen, a hands-on experience at turning locally found ‘waste’ into wonder – using simple DIY skills such as top-stitching, cutting and sticking, with support from local design tutors.
The programme will lead onto a showcase event later in May, as part of the B.fest Launch at Jubilee library, planned for Wednesday 20th May at 7.30-9pm
The B.fest 2015 event is an opportunity for you to come and view the Trashion-Fashion showcase and see how Remade in Brighton are promoting an awareness of waste, and finding problem solving ways to add value to left behind materials.
