Textiles Untangled Workshop

Join the Sustainability Resource Center and the Sustainability facilitator to learn about the textile industry through interactive, hands-on mini-games. This workshop offers a deep dive into the fabric life cycle, highlighting the textile industry's social and environmental impacts, and introducing sustainable alternatives. Participants will achieve a comprehensive understanding of the industry, from the sourcing of raw materials to end-of-life management.

Food will be provided to attendees.

Textiles are everywhere! In our clothing, furniture, toys and even computers! But how much do you really know about them? What exactly are our textiles made from? How sustainable are they, really? How far do our clothes travel before we buy them? Where do they go once they are donated?

This collaborative workshop illustrates the complexities and impacts (social and ecological) of the textile industry by using clothing as a case study. Participants will create the production chain of textiles, learn about the industry's impact, and then work together to find solutions and actions they can take.

You will learn:
1. Materials 101 - What fabrics should I choose?
2. The life cycle of textiles, from raw materials to end of life
3. Textile industry impacts on the planet and on humans
4. How to think critically of claims made by companies & organizations about their sustainability
5. Notions of ciruclar economy, systems view thinking, and human-centered solutions
6. Actions that can be taken on a collective, business, and individual level.

The event is organized during Fashion Revolution Week, a global movement iwht a collective vision for a fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment and values people over growht and profit.
