Teaching children about fashion…
In 2019, The Five Lamps Arts ran an eight-week programme of workshops teaching children how to sew, design and make their own clothes using sustainable materials and upcycling techniques.
The workshops culminated in a fashion show and photo shoot of the participant’s collections. Partnering in this project are Ballybough Youth Centre, LYCS, D Light Studios and the national Cruinniu na nÓg festival. The project is funded by Dublin City Council Arts Office and the North East Inner City Programme office.
Based on the success of the 2019 programme, Fashioning is Fun will be run again.
