This workshop is organised in collaboration with the University of East Anglia. Open to everyone. Come and enjoy colour, texture, shape and design!

Brought to you by We Wear The Trousers, the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park.
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.
