“Offcut Knits is a campaign that strives to empower those aged between 14 and 17 years old through the use of knitting. We want to give young individuals an online home where they can feel nurtured and listened to on their journeys to a more sustainable future. Offcut Knits will be a free online community that offers its users the latest news, keeping them up-to-date with inspirational knitting techniques and ‘how-to-guides’ to produce you very own unconventional yarn, using materials around your home. Valuing your clothing is one way you can reduce landfill and help the environment. Learning to knit, using up any old, worn out and/or scrap material will prevent these textiles going to landfill, thus, giving them a new lease of life and reducing the following statistic – 300,000 tonnes of clothing goes to landfill annually in the UK.” | @josephine.artwork |
