An introduction to our challenge – transforming textile waste into sale-able products.

We’re starting off the new year with a bang!

The Challenge: to take textile waste and turn it into sale-able products – ending with a stall at the Independant Market in April.

To introduce us to the Textile waste issue and offer some inspiration to get us all thinking, we’ll be joined by the fabulous Tze Ching of REfasion my town.

Come along and join us on the journey.

Make:Shed is a weekly creative workshop space for young adults aged 18-35(ish) from Frome and the surrounding area. See all upcoming sessions here or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates.

You can book a ticket via eventbrite, or alternatively contact us via FB messenger or on 07434 667 373.

This is a tutor-led MAKE: Shed session, funded by Somerset Skills and Learning. It is free for Somerset residents – we’ll just need you to complete a few forms for our funders.

Tutor: Cassie Morris

Cassie is the Programmes Lead for Make:Shed and Routes. She is passionate about re-using/reimagining and upcycling items that could otherwise be heading for landfill and reducing waste more generally, making instead of buying, as well as bringing people together to inspire creativity, share skills, build confidence and improve wellbeing.
