Mission to Mend: Hand Sewing for Beginners
Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ
Life skills and interests
Learning simple techniques for textile repair is beneficial for both us and the planet. It reduces textile waste, saves money and can improve our sense of wellbeing by developing hand skills and everyday creativity. So come along and join us for this fab workshop, which is part of our upcycling fashion series. During the session you will learn the basics of hand sewing, with two stitches that will be most useful for seam repairs and patching holes. All fabric and sewing materials are provided.
Learners who take part in this workshop will be able 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.
