Learning from Artefacts, Reflecting on Consumerism

In Chengdu, Sichuan Province, we have been supporting our partners in holding fabric craft and carpentry workshops for young people. The aim of the workshops is to allow young people to reflect on consumer culture and to re-establish our relationship with material objects through the act of tie-dying clothes and constructing wooden tools. It is hoped that they will subsequently reflect on and explore the meaning of sustainable living and put it into practice.
