Fabric Workshop Series  

On September 14th I was delighted to have the opportunity to share my love for sustainability education and conscious consumption as part of the Sunshine Coast Councils Fabric: Slow Fashion | Artful Living 2019 program.

The agenda included two of the Look and Feel Great in Sustainable Style workshop series.Framed by the delightful Homegrown Cafe Palmwoods roasting shed and gallery space, we loved, laughed and learned our way through the worship material.  Collectively sharing fashion trials and triumphs, sustainable shopping tips, and dissolving the masks we wear as we uncovered commonalities in our personal style and self-worth insecurities. 

After filling our bellies with delicious local produce we worked together to tick off sustainable shopping list items in an alfresco swap shop event. Surrounded by sprawling gardens and delighting to the acoustic sounds of sister duo Hazel and Roanna Law and friends we swap shopped the afternoon away.

The heart and soul of the event was captured through the ever talented lens of Jamie Stewart @studiosteww and I am so grateful to be able to share her beautiful work with you today.

Big love to all those who attended the Palmwoods event and subsequent Op Shop Ramble Event, organisers Sharon Stott and Saffron Drew, and all the beautiful creative people who helped make the day magical!

If you are on the Sunshine Coast and want to join in the workshop fun please check out the Wednesday evening ’Organise your Closet in Sustainable Style’ event held at the new Sustainability in Style HQ.

“What a fabulous day learning about sustainable styling and shopping. All the information Katie provided over the workshops informed and motivated the participants on their journey towards buying (or not) decisions that will bring about change in the fashion industry. I certainly left with a broader knowledge of how advertising can influence my buying decision, greater skills to make the best out of what is already in my wardrobe and information to assist on finding ethical fashion sources.”
