Clothes Mending Workshop in July

Home > Melbourne > Workshops | Fashion | Craft | Courses | Art and Craft Centres
Event:
Fix up your old clothes
Many of us hoard clothes in our wardrobes that need minor repair or alteration, with the intention of eventually fixing them.

Most of the time though, we don't get around to fixing our worn out clothes, because we don't actually know how to.

Now you can be taught the fixing basics in a 4 hour mending workshop with Handmaker's Factory, taking place on 20th July from 12pm-4pm.

Perhaps you need to patch a pair of jeans, repair tears or holes, replace buttons, or make simple alterations. This workshop gives you the perfect opportunity to give your old clothes a new lease of life.

Zips
Buttons
Fabric scraps
Fusings
Ribbons and trims
Needles and threads
Scissors
- Quick-un-picks
and more

A cutting out table, space for sewing machines and an ironing board plus iron are all provided in the studio.

Participants will need to bring the following on the day:
- Sewing machine (there will be a few available on the day but if a lot of your mending requires the use of a machine it is recommended to bring your own)
- Your mending pile
- Any particular sewing tools or materials you may need (i.e. pins, scissors, thread, fabric, trims, chalk, quick-un-pick etc)

There will be home baked treats, and tea / coffee provided. You are welcome to bring lunch with you, or grab lunch in one of Kensington's local cafe's.

Classes will be held at the following address:
