Sustainability and Repurposing – Our ever-increasing fast fashion industry is clearly adding to our environmental issues and it is becoming more and more evident that society needs to re-address how we are treating our planet. Loving clothing is great if we consider how we follow our ideas or the trends without impacting too much on the world’s resources.
Wellbeing – Such a fast-paced society doesn’t allow us many opportunities to switch off and slow down and we are drawn to instant gratification to fulfil our mojos. However, we all know that these are short lived and something more nourishing becomes vital for our wellbeing. It’s always a massive boost to learn something new and make something that we are proud of.
Engineering – This works in union with creativity. Many of us are dominant on one side of the brain and this element teaches us how things are put together and problem solve. This also helps us to appreciate how long things take to make and the skills needed to do so.
Creativity – This works in union with engineering. You have ultimate choice of what you’d like to make and how things will look. Thinking outside of the box will help to make it all very individual!
Pride & Confidence building – It can be daunting learning something new, but just taking the plunge you can learn how to make beautiful things yourself and be proud of what you have achieved.
