Away

Everything You Throw Away Has To Go Somewhere

 

The scale of the challenge to manage waste textiles and clothing in New Zealand, and indeed in every country on the planet, is immense. 

 

Exhibition

I am working with businesses and organisations in Wellington New Zealand to source waste textiles and clothing for use in a series of immense baskets.  Below is the current prototype basket using waste textiles from Wellington Curtain Bank

Workshops

I am also developing a Conscious Wardrobe Clinic

that will be presented over two days at Sustainability Trust in Wellington later this year.

We will be addressing the barriers that prevent our clothes from being on high rotation in our wardrobes

  • do clothes fit

  • are they laundered sustainably

  • do they need mending or repair

  • how can items be restyled, updated or repurposed to make them desirable again

The skills needed to maintain desirable and wearable clothes are diverse and include design, cutting, piecing, sewing, creative visible mending and laundering.

Watch this space for details. I will also be posting updates from my Instagram and Facebook accounts.
