Second Life: T-shirt Upcycling Workshop

With over 85 percent of textiles bought in Australia ending up in landfill each year, the environmental impact of this wastefulness cannot be underestimated.

Join in on this free workshop at the Museum of Contemporary Art and you can learn how to turn your tatty t-shirts into an awesome tote bag or plant hanger as this drop-in class provides you with all the required know-how. Led by an expert team of artist-educators, bring your own t-shirt or use one that's been saved from landfill. There's no finicky gluing or sewing involved, either. Free yourself from consumer habits and learn about the impact of the textile industry at this fun and creative workshop.

You can drop-in at this workshop between 11am–4pm on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. No pre-booking is required. This event forms part of the Museum of Contemporary Art's Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising program. To see the full program, head this way
