A Re-Mantle showcase
See the results of the Re-Make-A-Thons
The Re-Mantle and Make project is approaching its end and to mark the finale, the team is showcasing the results of the two Re-Make-A-Thons held earlier in the year.
The project is a six-month feasibility study into researching the potential for developing a circular economy within the textile manufacturing sector. In a circular economy, resources are used and re-used for as long as possible.
Participants at the events in Glasgow and Forres were asked to use surplus materials from a range of well-known Scottish textile manufacturers to make a prototype circular collar that could be worn with different garments.
The exhibition will showcase the items that were made. A last minute venue change means that the event will be at MakLab, Charing Cross Mansions, 30 St George’s Road, Glasgow, tomorrow (Friday March 17) from 6.30pm-8pm.
The Glasgow School of Art secured funding for the study from the Royal College of Art, London, which is leading a larger project: Future Makespaces in Redistributed Manufacturing, a two-year research initiative funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. This wider piece of work explores the role of maker spaces in redistributed manufacturing.
