We know that Bristol is full of creative and ethically-minded textile people but if only we all knew each other!
We would like to start a regular textile get-together… MEET, MAKE, MEND
Meet – Other members of Bristol’s Textile Community
Make – New Contacts, Share Skills and start New Projects
Mend – Bring a beloved piece of clothing to mend (*no experience needed, we can help each other)
A regular textile get together and mending circle. . . An informal gathering and opportunity for different local makers and small businesses to talk about what they do, show their work and make any shout outs that they need for support, help and/or collaboration
We continually meet new members of the textile community and we would love to find a way to join up the dots and create a true network for different skills so people can share their knowledge, help each other and collaborate.
We are in the early stages of creating this gathering, but if you would like to join us at our next Clothes Swap, we thought it could be the perfect forum to discuss how we see this evolving. If you are a local maker or business and would like to discuss and offer your support then please email Saffron at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
