Enfield Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The concept of the project taking unworn/old clothes throughout Enfield and redesigning/repurposing them. This is focused around one main event. Prior to the event , we would create a flyer and a social media campaign for people in the local community ( Enfield/Wood Green) to donate unwanted clothes . The main event is where young people in Enfield come together with items of clothing they no longer wear or aren't trending at the moment, they have the opportunity to swap old garments with other people in aims to get something new. After this process there are various workshops ( to do immediately) that demonstrate how to edit clothes, re style, re-vamp, dye, customise etc to add your own personal touch to it, through specialised practical workshops, with instructions that they can also take away, keep and use in the future. The workshops will include ( and not limited to ) dying clothes, basic sewing/editing clothes, creating jewellery, creating bags and revamping old shoes.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide takeaway photocopies of processes used
  • Provide free materials for workshops
  • Provide free workshops

Why it's a great idea:

There is a distinct lack of things to do in Enfield for young people practical workshops for young people in Enfield. There is an abundance of young image conscious people , young people lack of money , resources in a time where young people are so focused on their image and this will give them the chance to do so t in a more economical way that also teaches them about valuing what you have. We want young people to come away with skills that increase their employability. This kind of event has the potential to inspire more young people to lead on projects to better Enfield. This event will bring a community of young people, together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying/collecting fabric, dyes, sewing equipment for the event
  • Creating a flyer/social media campaign for the event
  • The Event itself
  • Choosing a space for the event
  • Collecting donated clothing
  • Promoting the event
  • Social media campaign and flyer requesting unworn/old clothing

We are linked to an employability program for young people, specifically in Enfield , Haringey and Waltham Forest, so following the event we can support many of the young people inspired by the workshops if they were interested in starting their own business, we could offer mentoring and advice and can offer further support , with finding work and opportunities after the workshops.
