About this Event

Our fantastic staff member Cher has some awesome skills when it comes to extending life of clothing!

She will take you through you a selection of some amazing visible mending techniques, i.e.: sashiko, needle felting, slow stitching, and embroidery.

Come and join our 2-hour workshop and enjoy this mindful activity that helps you to be in the moment, have fun and stops your clothing from ending up in the landfill!

What to bring: Hand sewing needles, suggested threads: cotton, mending wool, sashiko/embroidery threads, clothes to mend, assorted scraps of fabric.

We will provide extra threads and fabrics if you don’t have any in your craft stash.

Age restriction: 14+

Booking is essential as there are limited spots available! Parking is limited at the site, so we suggest that participants walk, cycle, catch a bus (there is a nearby bus stop), or carpool to the Recovery Park.

This workshop is brought to you by the Island Waste Collective and is part of the “Mend It” March series.

Cost: Free
