Give your old T-shirt new life: screenprinting event launches to support Oxfam’s Second Hand September campaign.

In collaboration with the highly esteemed graphic artist, printmaker and designer, Anthony Burrill and Oxfam, Jealous will be hosting a unique weekend pop-up at our Shoreditch Gallery ending on Sunday 1st September. Burrill has screenprinted over letterpress prints, that would normally be recycled, re-using them to create new unique pieces and will be live screenprinting onto second hand T-shirts to give them a new lease of life.

People are invited to bring their own garments to print on (for a small contribution), or they can choose from a supply in the gallery. These beautiful planet-friendly T-shirts and screenprints, designed by Anthony Burrill, will be available to purchase in the gallery. With special guest DJ Goldierocks playing on the Sunday.

The event is in support of Oxfam’s Second Hand September campaign, which encourages people to pledge to say no to new items of clothing for one month. Every week 11 million items of clothing end up in landfill and shockingly, the total number of clothes sent to UK landfill every year weighs almost as much as the Empire State Building. Fast fashion is harming people and our planet and, in spite of this enormous challenge, Oxfam is striving to reduce this figure, currently saving around 47 million items of clothing from going to landfill every year. 

Fee Gilfeather, Oxfam’s sustainability expert, said: ‘We are so grateful to Anthony Burrill and Jealous for supporting our campaign against throwaway fashion.

‘Being creative and jazzing up a T-shirt we’ve fallen out of love with by applying a screen print is the perfect way to revive our wardrobes, without purchasing new clothing.

‘We hope tips and tricks like this will encourage people to sign up to Second Hand September and take on the challenge of buying no new garments for the month. By buying second hand, or making do with what we have, we can all play a part in reducing the mountains of clothing sent to landfill.'

The money raised from the sales of second hand clothes in Oxfam’s shops on the high street and online brings clean water, food and shelter to people living in refugee camps. It sends girls to school, fights for women to be paid a fair wage in decent working conditions, and helps men and women farmers acquire the skills and materials they need to feed their families and work their way out of poverty.

A Private View will be held on Thursday 29th August, from 6.30-8.30pm at Jealous East. All are welcome.
