West London Waste is delighted to have team up with Love Your Clothes to bring you a series of sewing workshops! Each workshop teaches basic repair skills to extend the life of your clothes. They also provide an excellent opportunity to repair or re-fashion your pre-loved items and meet like-minded people to share these skills and knowledge with – regardless of ability!
Come learn simple techniques, tips and tricks for repairing and altering your clothes. Give your clothes a longer life and get more enjoyment and comfort from them with these simple 3-hour workshops! (No sewing experience needed)
Each year in the UK we throw away roughly 2 million tonnes of clothes and textiles worth over £150 million. Unfortunately, most of this ends up in the landfill or incinceration plant – which is not only a waste of money and resources, but also damages the environment. Learning to repair or re-use our clothes is a valuable skill that can ultimately help reduce our textile waste. So why not give one of our workshops a try!
While the workshops are free, space is limited so please sign-up at eventbrite.
