Slow Clothing is a way of thinking about, choosing, wearing and caring for clothes to ensure they bring meaning, value and joy to every day. For ages 17+.

The culture of excess is transformed through more engaged approaches, independent of fashion cycles. What we wear matters because it affects how we feel and present to the world, and contributes up to 10 percent of our carbon footprint. We can’t solve problems using the same thinking that created them and now we know about slavery, plastic fibres and waste associated with fast fashion, we are looking for more thoughtful approaches.

In this session, Jane Milburn discusses actions and choices to reduce our material footprint: think, natural, quality, local, few, care, make, revive, adapt and salvage.


Registrations required. For ages 17+. Email contact will be made prior to event start with event details.
