Fast Fashion Therapy is a sewing workshop that encourages the repair, upcycling and remodelling of used clothes, looking to break our habit to always buy new.
A collaboration between Eleanor & Sarah, the original idea for the name came from creating a workshop space that acted as a practical therapy for our collective addiction to fast fashion. The workshop also offers a therapeutic space for slowing down and taking a more mindful approach to fashion.
Our values of repair and reusing clothing are extended throughout our work. From the equipment and materials that we use to the marketing materials that we have printed.

We usually host clothes repair workshops in London and the South East. Our workshops are on pause at the moment due to Covid-19 but we have plenty of virtual workshops and videos to help with clothes mending. In person workshops are starting again in May 2021. Please get in touch to book us for your sustainable fashion event whether virtually or in person later in the year.

Eleanor is a textile designer, working mostly with stitch and embroidered textiles. Having experimented with and studied textile art and design since high school, she started working in the textile industry in production roles for luxury fashion and interiors developing her technical skills further through creating bespoke, hand-crafted textiles. An interest in working in a more sustainable and accessible part of the textile industry led to her returning to education to study for a MA in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art, with a focus on finding creative uses for textile industrial waste. Eleanor’s current practice looks to encourage greater participation in making, altering and upcycling our clothes and textiles as a way for fashion to be more unique, playful and sustainable. www.nortull.co.uk
Sarah is the founder of Olive Road London, an independent vintage fabric shop. Sarah has been sewing since she was a young child, making dresses for her Sindy dolls, progressing to clothes for herself. Initially taught by her Nan, she studied Fashion Design for four years at the London College of Fashion. She has worked in the Fashion Retail industry as a Junior Buyer and Exec Assistant. Working in a fast fashion environment inspired Sarah to source other sources of fabric that are more sustainable, such as vintage fabrics: reusing textiles and preventing them from being thrown into landfill. Sarah enjoys sharing her sewing skills with others, helping them to repair their clothes. www.oliveroad.london
