MIMMO Studios is a space for the creative community in Cheltenham and Cotswolds. During our 2021 pop-up, we hosted a variety of events - and plan to host many more in our new permanent space in 2022. More details coming soon.
From The Ground Up - Festival of Sustainability
Saturday 12th February 3:30pm
MIMMO Studios - Rethinking Retail
Lil and Katie founded MIMMO Studios in June 2021. They intend to rewrite the playbook on fashion retail by acting as a case study for new ways of doing business. With a focus on community and environment, they want to break away from the current system of overconsumption and provide alternatives which work as a viable business. They'll be sharing some of things they've learned in their experimental business so far.

Extinction Rebellion Green Friday Clothes Swap at MIMMO Studios
Friday 26th November 1pm - 4pm
WHY CLOTHES SWAP?
Disrupt fast fashion by proving there's alternatives to buying new;
The average consumer now buys 60% more clothing than 15 years ago, and disposes of them much more quickly. Only 1% of clothes are recycled to make new ones, 2 tonnes of clothes are bought in the UK each minute in the UK. Each week in the UK, 11 million garments end up in landfill. If clothing stayed in active use for 9 months longer (to an average of 3 years), this could reduce the carbon and waste footprint by 20-30%
WHY BLACK FRIDAY?
Black Friday sales reinforce the societal pressure that people need new things all the time. We want to celebrate the act of sharing and swapping on Black Friday - and make it Green Friday instead.
Swap, don't shop!
HOW IT WORKS
Please bring no more than 5 items of clothing, accessories and/or footwear ready to be added to the rail.
We accept all shapes and sizes including children's clothing. Please be considerate with the items you are swapping and make sure they are in reasonable condition and freshly cleaned.
Take your pick from the rail of garments which are being swapped by others!
This is a free event organised by Extinction Rebellion.

Weekend Residency: Indigo Dyeing with Centre Half
19th - 21st November 2021
Centre Half is a collective project by Daisy Gray and Mila Harris-Mussi. Their work together explores natural dyes, narratives & practices around textiles and traditional techniques.
Over the three day residency at MIMMO Studios, Centre Half will be working with the deep blue natural dye, indigo, to create a large-scale flag that will be installed in the shop space throughout the festive season.
They will also be running some short demonstrations across the weekend, and will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have when it comes to all things natural dyes.
