Mission to Mend: Hand Sewing Hems
Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ
Life skills and interests
This workshop is part of our upcycling fashion series and is a fantastic opportunity to learn, alongside other beginners, an invisible hand sewing technique. This particular technique is often used when taking up or repairing dropped hems on garments – a very useful skill, we’re sure you’d agree! No previous experience is necessary and 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.
