Course Code

Course Description

Led by fashion designer Emily Tan (founder of 1800 Gallons), this course will introduce participants to key ideas and approaches to sustainability in fashion in theory and in practice, through a series of unique talks and practical workshops exploring upcycling, repair, and the lifecycle of a garment.

This course will suit both creatives and general consumers of fashion, providing important experience in approaching design through a sustainable lens. Participants will build their awareness by exploring and acknowledging ethical and environmental choices, in their own work and the wider world around them, and discussing the direction of the fashion industry with regards to the global climate future and respectful working practices.

Participants will work through the choices and responsibilities designers have at each stage of the design process, and learn how to approach the design development stage through draping and drawing.

This course is an exciting, forward-thinking, practical introduction into sustainable fashion, with an emphasis on utilising pre-existing materials to enhance your current approach to environmental, social and ethical areas within fashion.

This course is aimed at participants who are 16 or older, and suited to those with an interest in further work or study in fashion, or anyone who is looking for to explore sustainable practices in fashion and approaches to prolonging the lifecycle of a garment.
