Komedia, 22-23 Westgate Street, Bath  BA1 1EP

  • Clothes accepted from 6pm

  • Upcycling demonstrations from 6.30 pm and continued throughout the evening

  • Swap from 7 – 9pm

During Bath in Fashion Week bring your friends to swap not shop!

On average 30% of the clothes in our wardrobes haven’t been worn in the last year.
So we are inviting you to bring any adult clothes, shoes and accessories that you are proud to pass on to others.

•             Items must be clean and in good condition (maximum 20 items per person).
            
For each item accepted we’ll give you one token to exchange for an article of your choice
             We can’t accept some types such as underwear and swimwear (check full details on our website).

Entry fee - £5 (includes welcome drink). Pay bar is also available.

Limited places so please book and pay in advance  - call Council Connect 01225 39 40 41 or visit our One Stop Shops.

We’ll have local clothing upcyclers demonstrating their fantastic work, talking about their creations, giving advice on repairs and a chance for everyone to make a tote bag from an old t-shirt including:

  • Kecks Clothing - showing how to upcycle your old clothes for new uses.

  • Kenaus - showing how they make your cherished clothes into stunning, uniquely hand-crafted items.

  • Fabulous Jewellery- re-modelled old pieces of jewellery donated from customers, to create fabulous new pieces on sale in aid of Breast Cancer Now.

  • The Craft Space - running a series of demonstrations to show you how to adjust, upcycle and transform your clothes

  • Bristol Textile Recyclers – showing you how the clothes and shoes the council collects from you are recycled.
