Waste to Wonder

Students get creative with scraps of fabrics, scavenged safety pins and discarded buttons turning textile waste into a wonderful brooch, accessory or themed piece they can take home. In the process, they will learn or refresh basic sewing and customisation skills. Creatively reusing waste rather than throwing it away sees pupils to value the materials around them and encourages us to consider what waste is.
