Our Youth Coordinator, Gillian Steel has organised a programme for 11- 18 year olds but also for the wider community. At the heart of this is ReMode – a threads boutique where we re-design discarded clothing for our own design label and cherry pick to create a vintage range of wearable gems. While the focus of our clothing is on young people they tend to have a broader appeal for all ages! How ReMode works: you can donate clothes you no longer wear to earn tokens which can be spent in the shop, or you can use real money – 1 token = £1. When you become a member you earn 4 tokens automatically and 1 more for each 0.5kg of clothes donated. Find us on 39 High Street Lochwinnoch.
ReMode is also a learning hub where many of our workshops take place. These include our, ReCycle or Dye redesign and make workshops for 11-18yrs, So Machine, a threads and decks re-design project for skateboarders (11-18yrs) , Meddle and Make and our Make Weeks for the wider community and Summer Space (11 – 18yrs), which this summer – 2017 will be based at Paisley Arts Centre, where we will be exploring trash and electronic conductive threads. We also host ReMode pop-ups and Swish events in and beyond our designated areas of Lochwinnoch. Kilbarchan, Brookfield and Bridge of Weir.
Our ambitions are to put in place a local creative hub which demonstrates a circular economy – encouraging an culture of reuse and repair rather than a ‘make it, use it & chuck it’ one!
