Clothes Mending Workshops at Home

Being stuck indoors during a pandemic is the perfect excuse to go through your wardrobe. What clothes have you not worn for a while? Is it because they need some TLC? Maybe a button has fallen off, hem come down? Holes to be patched or darned. We are on hand from home to give you some mending motivation.

Our Repair cafe offers 1:1 advice via video call. Book for a 30 minute session and we can get you started with your mend. Tickets are £9 including booking fee. £2.50 will be donated to charity (Refuge, Fashion Revolution and Trussell Trust)


Missing our regular Fast Fashion Therapy workshops at The Create Place? Join us for our twice monthly mending social via Zoom. Bring along some mending to do whilst chatting with the group. Share ideas or listen and sew.
