Wear Your Environmental Activism! – Creative Upcycled Fashion

Thursday | July 09, 2020 | 1:00 pm — 4:00 pm

Online Event

This hands on workshop will show you how to upcycle your old T-shirts and teach you how to design and fabricate a shopping bag and hat. Both of these projects will give you techniques that you can use to tailor shirts, create scarves and skirts, and make dog and cat toys.

While creating a personal upcycled fashion statement, students will learn about the environmental and social impacts of the fashion industry and how to be a conscious consumer. Additionally, they will explore how to use fashion as a means of creative individual expression through making upcycled wearable garments.

Artist and Environmental Educator, Nancy Judd Nancy works with classrooms and youth groups constructing recycled art and fashion- “trashion”- as a positive and interactive lens to view issues related to resource use, climate change and the future of human habitation on the earth.
