The Craftivist Collective will be joining the Upcycle Academy at this year’s Knitting & Stitching Show alongside Fabrications, TRAID and War on Want. The Upcycling Academy aims to teach aspiring fashion designers, as well as anybody interested in textiles about creative upcycling, textile waste and better fashion industry practices.

At the Upcycling Academy you will (for a small donation) be able to take a garment of your choice and upcycle it using a variety of techniques, such as free motion machine embroidery, patching, and making yarn from old clothes. There will also be information on the Love Fashion Hate Sweatshops campaign and the #minifashionprotest project with War on Want and the Craftivist Collective. There will also be a shop where you can purchase the Craftivist Collective book and have it signed by head Craftivist Sarah Corbett.
