Visible mending workshop

Join us at this visible mending workshop and save your clothes from waste. Learn transferable mending skills & make clothing re-wearable!

Did you know that a massive £140M worth of clothing goes to landfill in the UK each year? Don’t throw out clothes with holes – repair them!

We’re pleased to welcome Mary Broddle Embroidery back to Shop Zero again. Join Mary for a fun session learning how to patch your favourite jeans or darn your cosiest jumper. Moreover, all materials and equipment are provided to you. Just bring along a couple of items. Suitable items are jeans, jumpers, and anything with holes or stains. This is the perfect time to repair them and make them pretty to wear!

This workshop teaches you ways to beautifully repair your clothes. This results in longer lasting garments and less waste too!

The workshop runs from 10am-1pm on Saturday the 25th of June. We have 6 spaces in the workshop, meaning you will get close attention and help from Mary.

No items needing repair? Don’t worry, Mary will provide some fabric you can learn with.

PLUS – The mending doesn’t stop here – the course includes a “take-at-home” mending kit so you can continue using your newfound skills after the workshop!

    This course was lead by a lovely woman who was knowledgeable, friendly and patient. The course included enough information to tackle most fabric mending required and was well paced to allow us to practice techniques learned. The inclusion of a starter kit for each attendee was wonderful and meant that we were set up to carry on this skill at home. Highly recommend.
