Aunty Fashionista hates fast fashion which represents consumption gone mad. To combat this, she’s offering training and support in sewing skills, focusing on refashioning, garment copying, mending and upcycling clothing and textiles. From hand sewing to using a sewing machine, participants are encouraged to initiate and complete their own projects within a well equipped studio
Reusing, repairing and repurposing of clothing and textiles prolongs their life. This reduces demand for new items, which use limited planetary resources and lowers emissions, energy use, waste and consumption. The sewing skills learnt in the class will encourage a repair and a make-your-own mentality thus promoting a sustainable environmental practices.
