Mend and Make Fab!

Your Grandma probably knew a thing or two about making things last. Join Ilka White for a one-day workshop that honours those skills and adds a contemporary twist to patching and darning your favourite textiles. Mending can become an opportunity for wonderful decoration,alongside saving money and reducing landfill. Earn yourself some serious sustainability street cred on the quest for zero waste! Some tools and materials will be provided. Bring along your own worn clothes and home cloths for a special dose of creative TLC.

CERES

Vendor since 2013

CERES - Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, is an award winning, not-for-profit, sustainability centre located on 4.5 hectares on the Merri Creek in East Brunswick, Melbourne.

It is also a thriving community, an urban farm, Australia’s largest deliverer of environmental education, an event and conference venue and a place rich with social and cultural diversity. CERES is recognised as an international leader in community and environmental practice.

Built on a decommissioned rubbish tip that was once a bluestone quarry, today CERES is a vibrant eco-oasis. 350,000 people visit CERES each year. Many more engage with us through our Sustainable Schools program which takes sustainable education into schools across the state.

CERES’ green technology displays, buildings, education and training programs and social enterprises (CERES’ Organic Market, Café, Permaculture Nursery and Fair Food organics delivery) demonstrate food security, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiencies, renewables and water conservation in action.

CERES is a model for a future with sustainability, innovation and connectedness at its heart.

Come, be welcome, you never know what you will find on our rambling paths.

09 May 2019 • Darn it! - Mending and upcycling with Ilka White

What a wonderful workshop! Ilka was a great teacher, very professional -she was organised with materials, handouts, explanations on the board, demonstrations and problem solving. It was a relaxed atmosphere and she was more than happy to go over a technique again if we didn’t understand the first time around. The venue was ideal- clean, spacious and well located with easy access to cafes and nature during lunch break. Thank you for a great day!
