About the Event
The most sustainable clothes are the ones we already own. Got a hole or tear in your favourite piece of clothing? Or need to sew a few buttons back on? Fancy having a go at visible mending? Wanna learn how to darn a jumper? Or does your zip need fixing?
Bring your garms to our Mend It Workshop & we’ll show you how! Whether you want to make cool visible mends or clever invisible mends, you can use our sewing machines, iron & board, scraps, threads & needles to fix up your clothes & show them some love. (Replacement zips are available to buy if required.) Vicki will guide you to the best techniques & equipment to achieve your repair goals. It doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it’s textile, it can probably be repaired & we love a challenge.
All equipment & materials are available for repairs in the Mend It Workshop, but you’re welcome to bring your own too. Little experience is needed as Vicki will help you to work with techniques & equipment you’re comfortable with, or stretch your skills if you prefer.
Booking advised to avoid disappointment as limited places available.
