The state of the environment needs more people and businesses to consider ways to limit waste and become more sustainable. We believe we can and should all find ways to be more conscious of our impact through greater collaboration with other business and looking for creative solutions to combat the culture of “fast fashion” that is a major contributing factor to waste. A big part of sustainability needs to be finding opportunities to educate and teach people to buy less, mend items more and develop a strong culture of “making rather than buying” things.
Therefore we offer a range of art and craft group classes. We explore ways to reuse and up cycle fabrics that are already in circulation.
Our classes are held at Lindale Village in the Island Custom Creative Centre.
