9th July: ‘The Treasury’, monthly jewellery recycling workshop held by Emma Grace, 2-4:30pm [link]; “The Treasury holds monthly workshops where participants are invited to bring along broken or un-loved jewellery and found objects, to fix or re-create into something new and unique.  This initiative is an opportunity to re-connect with the idea of community; to exchange skills, materials, thoughts and inspiration. Participants will sit around the table with tattered jewellery piled high and leave at the end of the day with a bundle of ‘new’ jewellery and a bunch of new friends.  The Treasury is about sustainable fashion – moving away from ‘throw-away’ culture and leading back towards the way we used to live; where if something broke, you fixed it. Simple as that!

18th July: e.g.etal, Cinnamon Lee [link]; until 30th July
