The House of Rose & Brown, Saltaire
presents: Dead Threads
Launch day, Saturday 2 May from 12.30pm to 3.30pm

at Impressions Gallery, Centenary Square, Bradford, West Yorkshire BD1 1SD.

Breathe new life into unloved clothing.
Transform it into wearable, imaginative new outfits or accessories.

Refashion with flair, passion and a clear conscience - this is an opportunity to be part of a movement that is rejecting mass-market production and consumerism.  Refashioning is the creative way to recycle, the responsible way to look good, and the affordable way to be cutting edge.

A drop-in workshop where you can customise clothing, start your competition entry, browse and be inspired by the mini Rose & Brown vintage boutique, get some sewing help and sup lovely tea and cakes. Admission is FREE. Bring along some tired old clothing (your Dead Threads).  Other bits and pieces such as ribbons, buttons and scraps will be available for you to use.  You can even just come along for the fun!

The event ties in with Impressions Gallery's current exhibition 'Clothes for Living and Dying' by Margareta Kern which runs until 14 June 2009.


You can also enter the Dead Threads competition, brought to you by The House of Rose & Brown. The deadline for the competition is Sunday 2 August at 5.30pm. See the Rose & Brown website for competition details.  Prize winners receive Rose & Brown vouchers and a chance to star in a Rose & Brown fashion show.

Email me on if you have any questions!

If you can't come along, but want to enter the competition, get in touch with me or pop into Rose & Brown for an entry form.

Hope to see you there, or to see the fruits of your creative labours!
Best wishes
