Oblique Arts is an artist led organisation. We enable communities to work with us to explore their creative potential through high quality visual arts projects. We provide unique creative workshops, projects and multimedia installations for the public, individuals and groups to inspire and educate. We use the arts to encourage critical thinking and creative action. We specialise in working with at risk young people and hard to reach communities.

Eco-Fashion Workshop

  • Saturday, May 14, 2022
  • 2:00 PM  4:00 PM
  • Histon Library School Hill Histon, England, CB24 9JE (map)

Join Oblique Arts in an upcycle workshop and be shown how to create fabulous fashion from your cast away clothing! Customise your item with fabric spray paints, stencils, fabric pens and a treasure trove of jewels and materials. Then model your creation in a giant upcycled frame and be photographed for Oblique’s eco fashion gallery. Look unique & individual with newly created one-off pieces!

The fashion Industry is arguably the 2nd largest polluter of the Earth! Help save the planet & reduce landfill. No sewing skills required.

Clothes for upcycling and t-shirts for printing will be supplied, but participants are encouraged to also bring along their own clothing items to customise.

On the day of the workshop, upcycled outfits and eco-films will be on show in the libraries.
