Visit The Fashion School in Chelsea, a hub of responsible fashion, and learn different techniques to mend your clothing. An event aimed at encouraging repairing and upcycling instead of throwing away.
Learn through watching the tutor give a series of demonstrations before doing it for yourself. Bring in one to three items of clothing which may have a random stain, hole or tear and get advice and skills to give these garments new life: from fixing holes in jeans, darning jumpers, adding a patch or shortening sleeves.
Participants work between hand and/or machine sewing, with all the relevant haberdashery supplied. You’re welcome to bring any patches or embellishment that you may want to use. This workshop is beginner-friendly, no previous sewing experience needed.
