Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ
Life skills and interests
Join us for this creative workshop, where you will learn some basic sewing techniques to enable you to make simple repairs or change the look of your textiles and garments. Buttons are a common fault with clothing but are a very easy repair to make when you know how! So, whether you wish to make some environmentally friendly, cost-effective repairs or whether you want to replace a full set of buttons to give your garments a whole new look then this upcycling fashion workshop is for you! All fabric and sewing materials are provided.
Learners who have attended this workshop will be welcome to attend the Mission to Mend Community Roadshow with friends and family to showcase their work, should they wish. This is being held at the Recovery & Wellbeing College in Mirfield on Friday 16 June from 12.30 – 4.30pm.
Mission to Mend is a Heritage Lottery Funded WOVEN in Kirklees project, celebrating the importance of creative hand sewing for textile repair and the difference it can make in local communities.
