Should be fun!

Are you into ‘re-purposing’ old clothing?  Then you might be interested in this event:


Saturday March 13th from 11am to 4pm
By Donation, produced by ArtsConnect and Douglas College
Location: David Lam Campus Health Sciences Building Atrium 1250 Pinetree Way

Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of old clothing

The Swap: When you attend the swap, bring at least one bag of your unwanted clothing and a small donation.  Every swap begins with a giant collective pile of clothing – the unwanted clothing of all who attend.  Everyone is welcome to dive in and find their next new/used item from the pile.

DIY Workshops: After you have chosen your new clothes, slide on over to one of the sewing stations and attend a workshop.  Learn to make modifications or totally transform your finds.  Each swap features a variety of workshops by local artists who are there to share their sewing and modification secrets with you.  All the materials you need to sew, embroider, bead, fix, repair, knit, etc, are supplied.
