Sharing sewing skills for sustainability: During our 2 hour long workshops participants have the opportunity to explore the subject of sustainable fashion and lean the basics of how to mend, alter and properly look after your garments. Together, we will: discuss why it is important to act now, explore different mending techniques to keep your garments alive, learn how to mend different types of textiles, practice basic hand stitching and look over basic clothing alterations.
Free drop in sessions to meet friends: Although we cannot meet in person in our studio at the moment, we are staying engaged with all our volunteers by running google classrooms. We have set up a number of online workshops through Eventbrite to keep us connected.
We want everybody to sew! We want to extend our online workshops as well as add more in studio sessions to get everyone sewing! We only use donated textile waste to reduce landfill. Our aim is to establish a multicultural community of crafters, designers, seamstress and tailors that come together to learn from each other, while promoting a sustainable and ethical use of skills and resources.
