Fast Fashion Part 2

In October 2021 we visited Stott Park Bobbin Mill in the Lake District with 14 members of the Kendal Home Educated Group. During our day on site, we explored the social and environmental impact of the fashion industry over the last 250 years by taking part in a series of creative activities designed by the participants of part one of our Fast Fashion project.

“Fast fashion is a design, manufacturing, and marketing method focused on rapidly producing high volumes of clothing…These cheaply made, trendy pieces have resulted in an industry-wide movement towards overwhelming amounts of consumption. Unfortunately, this results in harmful impacts on the environment, garment workers, and, ultimately, consumers’ wallets.”

– Audrey Stanton, The Good Trade

“”[This activity day has made me feel] more connected to nature and the humans of the past” ”

“Thanks so much for such a great day that you provided. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and it re kindled our love of getting together and learning stuff. It was the first time since lockdown that we’d had a learning day together!”
