Are you interested in how time can affect fabrics?
Join us first for a talk where you will learn how fabrics change over time, and how some fabrics will even outlive us! We will then celebrate upcycling fabrics by making our very own textile coasters from waste textiles.
In this session you'll learn embroidery stitches and applique techniques. Fabrics will be arranged by biodegradability - so when you choose your fabrics, you can calculate how long it’ll take for the coaster to biodegrade.
All supplies are provided, just bring yourself!
