Come and join this exciting Mending workshop - that explores the damaging effects of fast fashion, and
promotes the notion of slow fashion practises. Mending rather than
throwing things away and buying new, and celebrating a 'visible mend'.


Bring along a piece of knitwear (e.g. socks, jumper,
cardigan) that has a hole, or a garment that needs some reinforcement,
throughout the workshop we will work to mend the garment so that you can
take it away and continue to wear it rather than throw it away.

You wil cover the technique of Swiss darning in the workshops, as it can be used to repair and embellish - and is easy  to pick up!
