Marketing the mental health benefits of being creative, social and learning new skills in sewing whilst promoting inclusivity in fashion

by Jen Burton in Newport, Wales, United Kingdom

My dream is to open a business with two sides. 

A side which celebrates inclusivity within the women's fashion industry with made to measure and off the rack hand made fashion and accessories and a side which helps to promote positive mental health and wellness through sewing. 

I want to teach the skills of sewing, up-cycling and creative design to those who may be suffering with poor mental health, are in underrepresented groups, unemployed or isolated to help them to sew themselves happy. 

I have a background in adult education which I left due to a frustration at how many people were left behind due to a mixture of reasons outside of their control, and with my own history of poor mental health I know how detrimental this can be. I want to be able to offer an inclusive and supportive environment to people in those situation while learning a new and valuable skill. 

I want to raise funds to go towards premises and equipment to make this a reality.
