Creative Pathways to Eco-Fashion takes off

  • Working alongside Voluntary Action to teach the skills of sewing and upcycling
  • The Pathways Programme provides them with an employability unit

This week we launched a four week programme within our Young Enterprise Academy.

Creative Pathways to Eco-Fashion works in partnership with Voluntary Action to provide skills in sewing and upcycling while working towards an employability unit at the same time.

A main focus is to help the participants see how they can upcycle by turning basic material into something else.

The three girls taking part spent the morning learning how to create tote bags from curtain material and putting this into action. In the afternoon, they discussed what skills and qualities they identified in themselves.

The activity involved planning, creativity, communication and teamwork to produce a wedding dress made entirely from toilet paper and cellotape.

Their next project is to create a skirt from old denims; we can't wait to see what they produce!
