Students will also be introduced to important industry terminology and participate in short practical activities along the way, encouraging them to relate to and process the information in their own individual context. This includes analysing their own clothing to better understand the journey a single garment goes through before making its way onto the market, and collecting positive small actions they can incorporate into their own personal daily routines. Finally, students will get to know the innovators changing the industry for the better and have the chance to put all this new found knowledge to good use by designing their own future forward garment.
During the Circular Fashion Programme students will:
- Gain understanding of the value-chain involved in creating a T-shirt and the impact that has on our planet
- Consider industry solutions which they can relate to
- Gain insight in to the role of the consumer and their own position in the narrative
- Get to know the innovators who use scientific practices to change the industry for the better
- Consider their role in the process as someone new entering the industry

Educational toolkit Classroom of the Future: the stories behind cotton takes students on a six session journey exploring the impact of cotton on people and our planet. Simultaneously, students are encouraged to follow, recognise and map their own learning and design process. They also gain understanding of how history and stories around a material can have impact on the present and the future as the next generation of makers. This toolkit is adaptable and suitable for MBO and HBO education students with a focus on creative studies like fashion, art and design. Teachers are also encouraged to use the tools as a base to apply in their own contexts.
Celebrate your birthday in the Fashion for Good Museum! During your party celebration you will go on The Journey of a T-shirt. The workshop will start with a short tour explaining how a T-shirt is made. After the introduction, the design workshop will start where you will decorate your own sustainable, fashion-forward T-shirt with natural dyes made from avocados, coffee and turmeric, as well as fun fabric markers and ‘off-cut’ embellishments!
Visiting the Fashion for Good Museum is also a fun activity for kids and families.
For curious young minds there’s the Fashion for Good Kids Corner! This is a special space in the museum where kids can get creative and dream up their own version of the future of fashion, right here in the museum.
We have a few activities available that are designed to be as fun and interactive as possible for 8-12 year olds and are available in Dutch and English. Here the kids – or innovators and designers of the future as we’d like to call them – can celebrate their birthdays, attend workshops or join educational programmes.
