Workshops for 2021 


Sustainability Trust Wellington 9 and 23 October 

Arists Barbara Wheeler and Caroline O'Reilly share  skills to manage a conscious wardrobe, in which all garments are desirable and wearable. We want to share skills that give people agency to manage their wardrobes better in order to positively address the immense textiles and clothing waste challenge currently facing New Zealand and the planet.

These workshops will be presented as clinics where participants learn the skills of design, cutting, piecing, sewing (machine and hand), repair and creative visible mending and laundering so that each participant leaves with the confidence to maintain garments that

• fit well

• are maintained 

• function for the season

• are attractive and reflect personal style

Half of the bookings are reserved for people under 25 and offer a reduced rate
