Material Awareness, Sustainability & Ethics Workshop

Technician Heather Shields will be hosting her next workshop next week on material awareness, sustainability & ethics within fashion & textiles as part of her post graduate certificate research project.

The workshops will involve examining students own garments in relation to the full life cycle of the garment from origin/materials, construction, wear and end of use. The workshop is open to all students, is completely voluntary and all materials will be provided, although you will be required to bring in a piece of clothing from home to observe and examine.

Time Commitment: Workshop 2.5 hours long
