Zero waste garment design led by Holly McQuillan
Make/Use is an experiential project that introduces the 'ethical fashion' concept of zero waste garment creation in relation to making both new and modifying existing garments. Over 4 weeks the Make/Use design team will be working in the gallery designing and making zero waste garments and leading weekend workshops that engage participants with the practical application of the zero-waste garment concept.
Through encouraging visitors and participants, including novice sewers, to make their own simple but experimental garments, Make/Use Project Leader Holly McQuillan hopes to assist others to re-evaluate their understanding of making, wearing, modifying and designing clothing.
Make/Use aims to make you ethical and fashionable. Accompanying Make/Use is a series of weekend workshops led by Holly. These are suitable for all skill levels.
