Event description

Description

What we wear is judged, outlawed, admired or ignored. Dressing ourselves is a form of self expression but it can also make a political point. In these turbulent times of Tory austerity, combined with an global political and environmental shit-storm, it's time we wore our heart on our sleeves. Don't hide behind smart, well dressed trends, it's time to SHOUT.

In this afternoon session we'll talk about how clothing is used as a political tool and create our own bright statement pieces. Bring an old hat or item of clothing that you want to up-cycle or just turn up and use the junk that we've collected. We have some fabric, sewing machines and bits and pieces. Join us at RARA a laid back open access carpentry workshop in Clapton where we will wear what we make (and head to the closing party to make our voices loud and clear).

* You are welcome to bring some food and drinks to share for dinner.
