so we are rebellious

An intensive 2 year up-cycling project in collaboration with the Dunbar schools, North Light Arts and Sustaining Dunbar. This exciting project will integrate with the whole curriculum and utilise the skills of various local professionals to deliver long lasting impacts on the consumption habits, not only of the pupils but of the whole community.

Rebellious Threads mission is to slow down fast fashion by swapping not shopping, creating, remaking, choosing and reusing, caring and repairing.

Join in for inspiration, skills and be the change.

Supported by the Climate Challenge Fund.
