Thanks for stopping by.
EcoFactory is a brand new Co-Designing Initiative from internationally renowned designer Annie Sherburne. We have a wonderful gipsy caravan, which has been lovingly painted by Annie and her amazing collective of exceptionally talented young artists and designers, which will be towed around London using eco friendly methods of transportation.
At this year's London Design Festival, Secret Garden Party and the Vintage at Goodwood festvial, EcoFactory will be holding co-designing workshops allowing members of the public to bring along old garments of theirs and have the opportunity to work with top designers giving their clothes a new lease of life.
Working with our partners TRAID who will be hosting their legendary Sew Good workshops, and Contemporary Applied Arts. EcoFactory will be teaching people the skills required to design their own clothing, even if they have no previous experience.
All participants at the Co‐Designing workshops are contributing their unique
creativity in experimenting with a new model of environmentally friendly
designing, which demonstrating by using talents and gifts given to us, we can
find solutions to stimulate new vibrancy in the economy. For example, the reintroduction
of horses as a part of carbon neutral transport alternatives. .
Another example is offering alternatives to the enjoyment of the shopping
experience, where we can develop ideas to transform what we already have in a
fun, useful and stylish way, instead of relying more and more of the plants swiftly
This is not recycling, it's re-creation.
