REDUCE, REUSE, UPCYCLE: Fashion and Environmental Damage
20 hours / 2 college credits from UCSD Extended Studies
Subjects: Technology and Environmental Studies
Prerequisite: Core 1, 2 Completion

An important consideration in textile arts is the environmental impact of apparel manufacturing. “Fast Fashion,” has been coined to describe the trend of giant companies selling low-cost fashionable garments. In this course we will spend time discussing our role as consumers and producers, learning ways to be more responsible and reduce our footprint on the planet. Projects: Upcycling, reusing and repurposing clothes and other textiles to create new garments that express each student’s style and creativity.
