Clothing is the body’s envelope, giving warmth, dignity and belonging. It can be very personal, with the body making an imprint on the material as it is worn: holes in elbows, rips in seams, fabric following the folds of the knees. However, the techniques and processes of textile production are among the most environmentally harmful practices.

In this workshop, Angela Maddock shares techniques of mending and repair to extend the life of the fabric and building value and belonging in old clothes. Participants are asked to bring along an item to repair and join to learn  environmentally sustainable skills such as darning, patching and button sewing.

The workshop is free but places are limited, so please sign up here.
