Highfield Community Centre Trash Fashion Showcase 2017

On a cold winter night, last Thursday Highfield Community Centre was awash with colour as the participants of Trash Fashion project showcased the outfits that they had made and designed.

The fashion show was hosted by group leader Robert Sterrett and attended by family, friends and neighbours, with lots of photos being taken by proud parents and grandparents.

After the show everyone was invited to stay tea and biscuits, which made for a lovely local community event.

The project was facilitated by CAP artist, Naoimh Larkin, weave designer.

The girls were taught how to weave, and create patchwork using a variety of materials everything from fabrics to plastics.

With Highfield Group leader, Robert Sterrett, Project Artist Naoimh Larkin and Community Arts Partnership Trash fashion Coordinator Heather Douglas.

As part of the Trash Fashion Project these very dedicated volunteers, Barbara and Lorraine made two beautiful patchwork quilts from the projects leftover fabric pieces.

These beautiful Quilts are to be raffled by the Highfield group, with the proceeds being donated to help fund treatment for one of their young participant’s relative who is ill.
