A 2-day sustainable fashion event promoting Fibre Growers & Makers and a
local clothing culture
Hawkers Farm, Stour Provost, is hosting the first of what is hoped to be an annual event, Defashion Dorset, an opportunity to celebrate local fibre growers and makers and a local clothing culture.
We buy locally grown food to support farmers so why don’t we consider buying locally grown clothing? According to Climate Words “To ‘Defashion’ is to combat the fashion industry’s role in the climate crisis and transition to regenerative and fair clothing systems.”
We will be welcoming some fabulous exhibitors including: Jo Nash Textiles, Tamarisk Farm, Snooks Farm Alpacas, Blue Barn Life, Townhill Studios - Shibori tie-dye, Vintage Maid, Haberdashery, Second to None, Honnor & Queens, Apshill Farm and Joanna Jenkins vintage clothing. Click here for more info
Workshops will teach methods of enhancing, embellishing and mending clothing including a weaving workshop with Tabby & Tweed and Shibori with Townhill Studio. There will be talks, films, refreshments and on the 26th, a solar powered disco.
