Reuse & Reduce

Our Reuse & Reduce project aims to:


● Equip individuals with sewing skills and generate interests in mending and DIY projects through sewing workshops; encourage a sustainable practice by providing free sewing machine access
● Introduce creative and fun ways of textile upcycling, supporting participants to utilise textiles to the fullest
● Encourage book borrowing: generate donations to have a selection of Chinese / English books relating to Chinese arts and culture available to the public, catering for both Chinese and English users
● Provide a free platform for swapping resources mainly clothing, introducing shopping in an alternative way

We are here to support utilising resources in the community to reduce waste, make your clothing last longer and increase the fun you can have with textiles.
