On Tuesday, October 11, we’ll be marking the United Nations International Day of the Girl Child with a Little Dresses for Africa sewing workshop.
The International Day of the Girl Child recognises girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.
Little Dresses for Africa is an American-based charity that Art Partners linked up with in 2013. However, the high cost of international postage derailed ongoing participation in this terrific project.
However, we’ve fortunate that there’s now an Australian collection point for the Little Dresses.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to create a dress for an African girl child by using a pillowcase, bias and elastic.
This workshop is made possible with support from Stirling Street Arts Centre and Lorraine Lea.
Date: Tuesday, October 11
Place: Stirling Street Arts Centre, Corner of Charles and Stirling Streets, Bunbury
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Places are Limited. To express interest in participating: Art Partners
Note: This is an inclusive workshop and is therefore open to people of all abilities. Required supports can be discussed on an individual basis with the Art Partners Program Officer.
