This workshop is part of a series that the Living Skills team are putting on to give members a chance to brush up on their sewing skills. Re-pair, re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose...

Learning how to repair garments, including knitwear, is one way to fight back against the disposable clothing culture. A "stitch in time" could potentially save many clothes from meeting an early demise and reduce your impact on the environment.  It is also deeply satisfying to repair your own things. You can also use "visible mending techniques" to add an interesting and individual touch to your own garment.

Bring any knitwear, jersey materials, T-shirts, cardigans and other stretchy fabric clothing and Katerina will teach and help you with the techniques required to mend and give them a new lease of life.

If you also have a mending / sewing / knitting / crochet project that you would like to work on or need help with, while enjoying good company in the peace and quiet of a lovely permaculture garden, we would love to have you join us.

All attendees must be double vaccinated.
