SEWING WORKSHOP - LEARN TO MEND THREE DIFFERENT WAYS
June 2023

Wonderful to hold our first sewing workshop in partnership with Kavitha from Isifiso in June. It was a workshop for beginners covering three key hand mending techniques:

- how to sew on a button

- repairing a split seam

- fixing the hem of a skirt or trousers that has come undone.

Absolutely no need to be throwing out your favourite clothes because of a small rip or missing button.

Learning these skills is a great way to help save you money, reduce waste by making your clothes last longer and to support the slow fashion movement.

In fact it was such a popular workshop we organised a second night later the same week!

In addition to the environmental benefits of mending your clothes, did you know that sewing has positive effects on your mental health and can reduce stress and anxiety?

 

If you'd be interested in attending one of these workshops, do let us know as we hope to put on more again very soon.
