South Eastern Regional College’s level 3 Art and Design students have undertaken a Up-Cycling Fashion Products unit as part of their course. The students worked with industry in the form of the Action Cancer Boutique in Lisburn. The students applied the Knowledge and skills they had acquired in College to add value to donated fashion and accessory items. The project has been a roaring success for Action Cancer, the SERC student cohort and the wider community who commented on the final displayed products when they were presented in the boutique window.


Quote from Jonny Robinson, Level 3, Extended Diploma in Art and Design at SERC, class of 2017
“Working with Action Cancer based on creating an up – cycled piece of clothing, I really enjoyed my experience working along side Action Cancer Lisburn. With it being a live project I gained lots of client experience and it showed me that working to deadlines is very important! The over all outcome was to present our up – cycled pieces in their window display which turned out absolutely fantastic. We were helping a great charity and getting our qualifications in one go. The feedback that we received was really positive.”
