Up-cycling textiles & RWN Community Re-use Project
Despite being relatively easy to recycle, an estimated 93% of all textile waste in Ireland is sent to landfill, producing detrimental environmental effects. In an effort to do our bit locally RWN has established a local textile upcycling project in Castlerea town with the support of Roscommon County Council, GRETB and The Rediscovery Centre in Dublin.
As part of this project we are offering our part-time textile/ fashion upcycling course, which runs periodically. You can learn easy techniques in sewing, printing, design, pattern making and the different skills and awareness needed to upcycle clothing and fabrics. Or maybe you have some or all of these skills already with an interest in upcycling fashion and would like to think with other local likeminded people?Then we would be delighted to hear from you!
