As part of Fashion Revolution Week 2019 we are joining Betsy’s Swap Shop Fair Fashion Fair. A fun day to swap clothes and learn beginner’s darning skills and patching techniques to help you mend and up-cycle old and damaged clothes. Click here to pre-book tickets for the swishing event, which costs £10 and includes food and refreshments.
The workshop will take you through the basics of these ‘visible mending’ and classic repair techniques, starting by fixing holes in knitwear, and then learning both ‘boro’-style patching and invisible patching. We’ll leave you with the skills and information to keep you fixing at home! All materials and kit will be provided. £5 contribution to take part – paid on the day at workshop – The workshop is sold out but come along to take part in the swishing event. Stop by our workshop in case we have had any last minute cancellations and can fit you in.

Join us for some #everydayactivism at Pebble Magazine’s first ethical festival, Pebblefest. We are taking our Fast Fashion Therapy on the road and demonstrating how to repair clothes through darning and patching.
A sewing workshop encouraging repair, up-cycling and remodelling of used clothes, looking to break our habit to always buy new. Fix holes in jeans, darn jumpers, shorten sleeves or create a new outfit from something already in the wardrobe. Bring along an item of clothing to repair or re-work into something new. Or practice basic techniques on the examples provided. Help will be given with ideas and basic sewing knowledge. Suitable for beginner sewers who need some help or more experienced sewers looking for a dedicated space and time to sew. We are a friendly and collaborative group, be prepared to share ideas and help others.
We also run workshops at events around London. Click on ‘Events’ in the menu bar above to find out more. Please email us on email@example.com if you would like us to deliver a workshop at your event.
We hope to see you at a workshop soon, Eleanor & Sarah
