Common Threads – Woven through Community


Join Jane Milburn for this once in a lifetime opportunity to workshop the topic of Clothing Revival. Jane is travelling directly from over East to us at The Sound Temple to bring her wealth of expertise on this topic to the heart of the Perth Hills Community.
Jane says “Clothing is as essential as food for our health and wellbeing because clothes do for us on the outside what food does inside – they nourish, warm, and engage body and soul. What we choose to wear impacts how we feel and how we present to the world.”

This is a fun and uplifting experiential workshop where we use scissors, knotting and stitching to reconfigure your unloved t-shirts into a range of eco-products of our own making to suit our own style. Rework your old Teez into Catwalk Quality accessories that you will fall in love with again, the perfect up-cycle opportunity.

Remodel your t-shirts into endless opportunities including a beautiful neckpiece, bracelet, brooch, ring, phone pouch, shopping bag, caplet, beanie, ribbon/ties.

Please pull out a few unloved t-shirts from the bottom of your wardrobe and a good pair of scissors (if you have them) and with some magic shared by Jane, you’ll fall in love with them again.
