This event has already taken place.

Extend the life of your clothing. Reuse. Recycle. Revive. Save money and the planet.

The project ‘We Wear The Trousers’ focuses on empowering people to keep clothing in active use for longer, and to think differently about our wardrobes and how we wear them.

Join members of this project to learn upcycling techniques such as darning holes, patching and replacing buttons.

Bring a garment with you that you’d like to transform and have an uplifting, upcycling conversation.

If you’ve never done mending before, come along and see what you can learn!
