Local Cloth: Reflections from the One Year One Outfit Challenge
The One Year One Outfit Challenge is a community creation of stories and fibre based pieces that explore and celebrate local material and human resources within our Fibreshed. Anna Hunter -co-director of the Pembina Fibreshed -will look at the process of creating clothing and textiles using only those resources, labour and dye material sourced within 200 miles of the Pembina River Valley. This challenge works to expose both the fragility and strength within our local clothing supply chains and how we can build resilience for the future.
This talk is presented in association with the Pembina Fibreshed.
