Creating Change, Reducing Fashion waste
How can we turn fashion waste into something useful and a new life again?
Participate in the hands-on workshop where you learn about different processes which can give your old clothes a new life.
A lively community of eco sewers
Months of effort culminated in almost 200kg of fashion waste collected from swap shops, thrift stores and green movements around Singapore.
These were repurposed and put to good use in imaginative upcycling projects, which will be free to view at Temasek Shophouse. Now till 31 Oct 2021.
