Come along to the Eastgate on Thursday 19th March to have fun and learn more about the ethics of the fashion industry.
At 7.30pm, three graduate students from the Masters in ethics in fashion at Heriot Watt University, Galashiels will present their work. The Masters is a new(ish) course, pioneering, in its research looking at ethical and sustainability issues in the fashion and textiles supply chains. The students will talk about their research into fashion brands and there will be ample time for questions and discussion.
From 6pm, there will be stalls and workshops offering the chance to clothes swap (bring 3-4 garments in good condition), learn about natural dyeing, making tee-shirt bags and other upcycling ideas. Useful fun!
