CHAIN REACTION: UPCYCLED JEWELLERY WORKSHOP

90 mins | 6 places per session

How can we counteract fast fashion? Chain Reaction is a unique upcycled Jewellery workshop that aims to show how by using what we already have, we can start a chain reaction of sustainability and creativity. The workshop uses waste t-shirts to create beautiful contemporary jewellery and brings people together to explore recycling and its place in craft/fashion. 

Chain Reaction is an example of how collaboration and creativity can have a positive impact on our planet. Through using our hands to create something for ourselves or as others, we soon find we already have a huge amount of sustainability knowledge right at our fingertips! All t-shirts are sourced through charity shops, some hand-dyed using natural pigments. 

Participants will be shown how to make a length of yarn from just a t-shirt and will be instructed through the finger knitting technique, resulting in their own necklace or bracelet.
