Thread Counts Project

3 day workshop: Wednesday 23rd June to Friday 25th June 

Do you have an interest on fashion and/or sustainability? 

Project Outline:

This project will address issues around fashion consumption in the context of school uniform. A project brief will be set to pupils from CEP schools and will challenge pupils to design and make wearable fashion items from used/second-hand school uniform (this could be shirts, jackets, trousers, skirts). This project is ideal for pupils who are passionate about fashion and/or sustainability. The project will run over the course of 3 activity days, where pupils gain an understanding of issues surrounding fashion consumption, the impact fashion has on the environment and an understanding of a life cycle of a school uniform. Additionally, all pupils will gain a variety of skills such as up-cycling and/or repurposing school uniforms, teamwork, leadership, creativity, technical sewing and drawing skills for example.

This project is being hosted at the University of Gloucestershire, Park Campus.
