Join us for a restorative mending afternoon, and repair beloved garments with your own creative flair! We offer hands-on guidance on darning, patching and other visible mending techniques.

Bring your own mending, sewing or upcycling project.

Make use of the sewing machines and craft supplies we have for sharing, including fabric scraps and clothing intercepted from the waste streams. A treasured collection of books on mending and resilient textiles will also be available for inspiration.

Free event, koha will be appreciated.

Please register to attend in-person.

This event is made possible thanks to funding from Wellington City Council, and generous support from Sustainability Trust and the SPCA Op Shop Lower Hutt.
