TARTAN MIND MEND LAUNCH

November 9th, 2021


An art therapy project with a sustainable focus aiming to raise money for people suffering with mental health issues associated with lockdowns and Covid 19. 

Tartan Mind Mend asked members of its extended creative community to re-purpose their samples and seconds, with the hope of: 

 – Raising awareness of sustainable practices in the fashion industry.

– Soothing frazzled nervous systems with creative therapy and community connection.

– Supporting and promoting creative individuals and small businesses during lockdown.

– Raising money for mental health focussed charities. 

Each collaborator was given a Tartan sample which they were invited to mendpatch, dyere-constructshredweaveknitpaint, drawembellish or alter in any way that moved them. The re-imagined pieces are on display in store at Poepke from today until the 22nd of November and will be auctioned online from the 12th of November.

100% of the proceeds from the items sold will be donated to the following charities:

https://kidshelpline.com.au 

https://suicidecallbackservice.org.au 
https:headspace.org.au

To help support the project you can follow our progress on Instagram @tartan_official and #tartanmindmend, view the finished pieces in store at Poepke and donate and bid online www.airauctioneer.com/tartan-mind-mend from 10am this coming Friday 12th of November.
