Event description
Learn how to make your own washable sanitary pads.

About this Event

We are an emerging new collective, locally and globally...

We'll provide technical fabric scraps, threads, wools, needles to get you going, however please do bring your own if you can, most especially if you have a very specific mend. We also provide refreshments to keep us going!

There is a minimum donation of £5 and for now, it is cash only.

The beginning of this new venture are our clothes mending socials and now themed workshops from our incredibly talented practitioners. The idea behind these sessions is to create a regular chance for people to come together, and to repair those loved items of clothing (which we all have piling up somewhere!). Not only will it be a place to learn a new skill but we hope that it will be a space for everyone to share any existing sewing or tailoring skills and techniques in clothes mending - so it won't be lead by one individual.

We are seeking local textile makers, menders, practitioners, clothing lovers, fashion related business owners and anyone else with an interest to join our regular sessions. Together we want to create a local vision, a permanent space and a viable business where our sustainable fashion practices can thrive.

For this workshop there is an additional £5 fee for fabrics, unless you bring your own. Each participant will go home with a pattern and instructions for how to make your very own washable sanitary pads.
