Little Hands Design: Engaging Young People in Sustainable Fashion

Little Hands Design: Engaging Young People in Sustainable Fashion

Georgie Rees Monday, 1 June 2020

A lot of what we set out to do at The Sustainable Fashion Collective is about leaving our beautiful world in a good enough state for the next generation, but if we don't equip that generation with the right skills and knowledge, all our good aims and intentions will be lost. One organisation that understands this better than most is the folks over at Little Hands Design, who run creative workshops for children and adults, teaching about issues of climate change through sewing and dressmaking. 

In this video, we hear from Georgie Rees, Fashion Designer, Pattern Cutter and Managing Director of Little Hands Design about what the future holds. 

In this video you'll learn:

  • About what Little Hands Design offers children and adults in terms of courses and education in sustainability
  • How the school activates sewing skills to increase awareness of climate change and sustainable fashion
  • Why you don't need to be a professional dressmaker to bring about change
  • Ideas and resources for engaging children and young people with sustainability
