The Sew Sustainable Workshop

Sustainability but make it fashion.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

We all want to look fabulous, but how do we do it in an eco-friendly way?  

In this two-part workshop, children aged between 12–14 will go through the innovation process to develop a deeper understanding of textile technologies and create their own stylish and sustainable item.  

In addition to learning some basic sewing skills, throughout the workshop, participants will learn how to: 

  • design and create using the innovation process 
  • apply scientific thinking to create more sustainable options within the fashion industry 
  • work collaboratively with their peers on a group project 
  • make fabrics from sustainable materials.  

Speaking of sustainable, if you have an item of clothing that you would like to repurpose, please bring it along to use in the workshop! 

The Sew Sustainable workshops are supported by Woodside as an extension of Scitech’s Kaartadjin Koorliny Gallery.
