Could you design something useful from waste? A new garment, or textile, or something for use in the home, office or garden? Something that others could re-create? Creative designers in Winchester District are invited to enter the Re:Design Challenge, open until 11 March 2016. Details can be found here.

The Challenge was launched on Saturday 10 October, with teams from local schools and colleges taking part in a one-day design boot camp at Winchester School of Art.  30 students and teachers took part in the 'Designing for the Future' one day fashion design challenge, creating 6 outfits from recycled clothes. One tonne of clothing was provided by the PDSA and the Mayor of Winchester, Cllr Angela Clear judged the results along with International designer, Reem Alasadi and PDSA Manager, Kit Lendon. 

The winning outfit was made by a team from Kings School, Winchester and will be showcased in the Winchester Fashion week in April 2016. Kings School team

The Great Waste is a joint initiative between Winchester City Council and WinACC.
