Free Community Clothing Swap

Join our community clothing swap with your new and used clothing, accessories, and fabrics. Bring a bag with your items and leave with something new to you without spending a dime. By sharing these items locally, we keep them circulating, away from landfills, allowing them to be cherished and reused across many lifetimes, thus protecting our precious environment. It's a great opportunity to connect with our community, declutter your closet and find some hidden gems.

Spring Workshop Series: Mending

As we finalize our spring programming, we are excited to introduce a garment mending series taught by the women of the Regent Park Sewing Studio. From fixing knits to patching moth holes, we invite you to join us in our lab to mend with care and prolong the life of your garments.

If you're interested in participating, please let us know which days and times of the week work best for you. We'll stay in touch and keep you updated on workshop scheduling. Looking forward to connecting!


Design as a tool 

for positive change

We actively share our research and design explorations with the community through dynamic workshops and exhibitions. By incorporating design into hands-on activities and activations, we introduce the concept of the circular economy in a way that is accessible and easily understandable for everyone in our community – from individuals to businesses and organizations.


From theory to fabrication the lab aims to empower communities by fostering creative confidence and ideas by learning through hands-on making. The creative collective facilitates a variety workshops to teach our community about circular ways of creating by addressing our current linear economy with alternative sustainable methods of making. 


Accessible to all, our exhibitions serve as a continuation of our ongoing research and diverse collaborations with individuals, businesses, and organizations. These exhibitions are open to the public, providing a platform to showcase the insights and discoveries of the lab.
