Community Clothing Clinic

May 21, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join Remake’s Seattle Hub for a Community Clothing Clinic on May 21st!

This event will contain a series of workshops open to the community for learning how to extend the life of clothing while having fun and discussing the importance of sustainable fashion through reading, The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy.

Seattle Fashion Academy and the Remake Seattle Community are coming together to host a series of seasonal clothing clinics centered around mending and upcycling while exploring the ideas behind sustainable fashion.

Along the way, we will read the book The Travels of a T-shirt in the Global Economy by Pietra Rivoli and discuss our thoughts while learning how to extend the life of clothes we already own.

For our second event, we will focus on the art of upcycling. Please bring 1-2 garments that could use a little extra care and learn how to turn them into something you’ll love to wear…again!

We may also share a passage from our reading, The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy by Pietra Rivoli, for discussion while we work. BYOB (bring your own book). It will not be provided.

Fee: Event is free. Though, a donation (suggested $20 per ticket) to support Remake is gladly accepted. Please donate here. Remake is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working at the intersection of labor rights and climate justice within the clothing industry.

RSVP: Registration is required as we have limited spots for events.

Parking: Seattle Fashion Academy is in the Westmore Building, which has residential units on top. Parking is available in front stalls 13-16 and behind the building in spots 27-31. Covered parking is reserved for the residents. There is additional parking to the east of the building in the “Versatile” lot.

Note: Masks are required for anyone entering the school and required for the entire duration of event.
