Christmas Jumpers Limk 002.JPG
Students from the Fashion Department of Limerick College of Further Education (LCFE) have the upcoming festive season all sewn up through their participation in an innovative upcycling project.
Showing off some of their designs are from left: Daryl McMahon, Corbally, Patricia O'Shaughnessy, Caherdavin and Mini McDonagh.
The students are partnering with the Southern Region Waste Management Office (SRWMO) to transform jumpers owned by members of the public into Christmas jumpers in an effort to re-use some of the estimated 1 million tonnes of textiles thrown away annually from domestic sources.
Members of the public are invited to bring their jumpers along to a workshop at 20 O’Connell Street, formerly Fergusons Chemist between 11am and 3pm on Saturday December 14th.
