Bats of Leisure are a brother-sister creative duo Aaron and Aoife Billings that focus on creating handmade wearable art. The young team rebel against fast fashion and mindless capitalism, and instead use their creative flair to produce handmade clothing collections, run workshops, as well as collaborate with local artists to create films, music and installation work.

You can bring a preferred item of clothing that you wish to embellish (the best fabrics for this are non stretch, heavy weight cottons or wool blends). Bats of Leisure will also provide fabric to embroider if you prefer.
