Bring along your old or damaged clothes to learn sewing skills to help you repair or refashion them into something new.

About this event

Eleanor and Sarah are on hand to help you repair and upcycle your old or damaged clothes. Please book a free ticket to confirm your attendance, as we may not have space for you otherwise.

If you bring along your own clothes to work on, we can offer advice and ideas on how you can repair or alter them. If you would just like to have a go at some simple techniques, we have spare fabrics so you can practice on those first. The Create Place is set up with sewing machines, irons and basic sewing equipment to get you started. Please bring along a sewing kit if you have one, we can't provide all materials so if there are any extra trims or fabrics you specifically want to use please bring these along too.

We keep our workshops free so everyone can have the opportunity to join us, if you are able to make a small donation with your ticket it would be hugely appreciated and would support the work we do in reaching more people with clothing repair! Suggested donation is £3.50.

We are a friendly and inclusive group, we invite everyone to share any ideas they may have with others on how we can mend and refashion clothes to combat textile waste.

The workshop is free to attend and runs from 6.30pm - 8pm every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at The Create Place, St.Margaret's House on Old Ford Road in Bethnal Green, London.
