You can bring along your worn out, broken or unloved clothing to this workshop where sewing facilitators Make Mee Studio will show you how you can use print and hand stitching to breath new life into your clothes! We\'ll be showing you how to use simple and effective printing techniques & hand embroidery to adapt your clothes. All ages and abilities welcome. Almost a quarter of the clothes we have in wardrobes are going unworn. Some people throw them away but over 300,000 tonnes of clothes go into Landfill every year, and 95% of that could be reused or recycled! A lot of effort goes into making clothing and we think they should be loved, cherished and given a second chance and and want everyone to have the skills to be able to save clothing from landfill. When you can sew you have great power in being able to unlock the potential in broken, forgotten, ill fitting items and turn them in to something new and keep them in use for longer. It\'s heartbreaking when you think about the time, energy and resources that go into making our clothes and the people in the supply chain that make them, and we just throw them in the bin! It\'s time to opt out of the endless fast fashion, throwaway culture.
