The reality of Halloween is pretty scary! According to the environmental charity Hubbub:
We think these statistics are much more terrifying than any costume could be, which is why we’d like you to create a Halloween costume with a difference!
Bring a garment with you to decorate – like a t-shirt, jumper or jacket – and together we’ll draw, patch, stencil or stitch these spooky Halloween stats onto our garments as a protest against fashion waste.
If you don’t have a garment to decorate, you can choose one from our rail of unloved clothing (but please consider making a small donation to cover the costs of this, if you’re able to).
This is a drop-in session, with basic materials provided. This workshop is suitable for all ages, but children must be accompanied. As it involves sewing and small objects, this workshop may not be suitable for very young children, but they are still welcome to join us.
Cost: Pay what you can (suggested donation £3), drop-in
Recommended age: 7+

We Wear The Trousers is a not-for-profit organisation aimed at empowering people to keep clothing in active use for longer. This not only reduces the overall environmental impact of our wardrobes, but also teaches us to think differently about the clothes we wear, and how we use them.
We believe that through engagement, education and events, we can transform our relationships with our clothing from the current, unfulfilling Fast Fashion paradigm, to something much more meaningful.
Tackling global challenges, striving for student and staff success, and creating a vibrant and inclusive environment, the University of East Anglia is an anchor institution in the Norwich and Norfolk community. See what makes UEA special and plan your visit at https://uea.ac.uk/visit/2021-open-days.
