Mission to Mend Community Roadshow

Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ

Friday 16 June 12:30pm - 4:30pm

We invite you on a Mission to Mend – a celebration of community textile sewing for repair. Following a series of repair and textile heritage workshops with the local community, the roadshow event will bring together the best of local sewing and celebrate with talks, demonstrations, workshops, an exhibition and music.

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.  Learning simple techniques for textile repair is beneficial for both people and planet. It reduces textile waste, saves money and improves wellbeing by developing hand skills and everyday creativity.

The roadshow is open to everyone, family friendly, and sewing participation is encouraged (but not essential!).

No booking is required.  We look forward to seeing you there!
