Mitchell Youth Council will host a POP UP Clothes Swap at WSC at lunchtime, Friday 30th April, where WSC staff and students can bring their clean and undamaged items of clothing they no longer want, need or wear and swap them for a token.
These tokens can then be used to source another item of clothing at the Wallan Community Centre on Saturday 15 May 10am-3pm. Attendees can also get involved with sewing workshops that encourage up-cycling and enter any new piece of transformed clothing into a competition that will be run throughout the day.
