Appearing at the 2015 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire, Re-make | Re-do | Re-wear is a project that gives clothing and textiles a new life through embellishment, re-design and re-construction. It will feature a mini production line formed of designers and makers from Kalopsia Collective.
You can get involved too! Simply bring a long something old (a garment, bag, or other textile item) that’s looking a bit unloved and could do with a makeover. Then had over your item for a ‘service’, you get a receipt to take away while it’s being processed and you can then come back to claim your newly transformed item later in the day!
The project aims to breathe new life into and add new value to peoples unwanted textiles and promote ideas about circular economy and closed loop textiles design.
The 2015 Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire runs from 10am-5pm on Sunday 19 April – tickets are available now.
