Dungiven Regeneration Upcycling Project

Nestled in a wonderful little craft shop in the middle of Dungiven’s main street, artist Helen Henshaw facilitated CAP’s Trash Fashion project.

The workshops took place on a weekly basis from September through to December.

This wonderful group of creatives, led by Group leader-Margaret Mc Closkey, were busy recycling and upcycling. A variety of technics were taught, such as fabric printing, applique, hand sewing and embellishing.

This relaxed community workshop, had always a friendly word, with lots of laughs and the teapot was always on the go. Here are some images of some of the beautiful fashion pieces they have produced.
