Upcycled Clothing Talk and Darning Workshop

Jane Milburn is a Brisbane based sustainability consultant at the cutting edge of the Australian slow clothing movement.

Jane focuses on the substance, not just the style of the clothing we wear everyday as protection for our bodies and as a statement about who we are.

Clothes do for us on the outside, what food does on the inside.

In the same way that conscious eaters are sourcing fresh whole food and returning to the kitchen – conscious dressers are seeking to know more about clothing provenance and the making process.

Jane is a natural-fibre champion – linking the everyday action of dressing to health, wellbeing and sustainability.

In 2014, she engaged in a 365 day slow clothing conversation and in 2016 developed The Slow Clothing Project.

You can find out more about Jane by visiting:


Darning Workshop

Many of us have never been taught the art of darning. When we get holes in our socks or jumpers we ditch them.

Jane and local repairers guide participants through the process of repairing a sock or woollen garment.

Bring a project that needs mending. If you have darning needles & thread also bring them along.
