Auburn Sewing Hub aims to establish a community-based social enterprise through sewing, culture and story, and involves three stages of activity: sewing skills development, business development, marketing and distribution. These are achieved through an experiential training and mentorship program delivered by I.C.E.
This project is offered in partnership with Auburn Diversity Services Inc. in Auburn to women who are interested in making their own traditional clothing, specifically chole or Indian blouse and expand their embroidery skills. The aim is to identify potential skilled women and support them into creating their own sewing business.
This project is part of the Multicultural Women’s Hub supported by the NSW Government through Multicultural NSW.
Information + Cultural Exchange also receives core support from the Australia Council for the Arts, the NSW Government through the Department of Family and Community Services and Create NSW, Crown Resorts Foundation and The Packer Family Foundation.
