“Orkney isn’t well-known for it’s fashion even though it’s a place with a surprisingly large creative community and quite a few local designers. So it was really rewarding to take part in a workshop that allowed me to explore fashion in a creative way. It’s something I wouldn’t otherwise have been able to do in Orkney, which is a real shame as I love to dress up and have fun with what I wear.
The workshop was such a brilliant way to spend a Sunday and it was a great way to meet people with a like-minded passion for charity shops. I’m so glad I was able to participate.”
