Apologies for any disappointment caused.

Join us at this workshop to find out how you can repurpose your own clothing in creative ways

Fast fashion is leading to tonnes of clothing being discarded daily which has a huge impact on the environment.

At this workshop with artist, Fong Scott, you will learn how to transform your pre-loved clothing into a beautiful decorative coil pot.

Just bring a pair of old clean jeans or denim fabric with you.
