Fast Fashion Therapy workshop

12.00pm

Workshops

Staff, Students

Learn some basic techniques to help you start repairing and keep your clothes lasting longer. This workshop will take you through a simple darning technique for fixing holes in knitwear and patching for wovens inspired by the Japanese art of 'Boro'. The workshop focuses on a more visible style of mending, so we'll also take you through some quick fixes for adding embellishments and textures to cover holes and stains. All materials and kit will be provided.

Fast Fashion Therapy was born out of a desire to help others to get the skills needed to repair and rework their clothing, giving everyone the opportunity to experiment with fashion in a more sustainable way. The practical workshop can hopefully act as a therapy for our collective addiction to fast fashion! We run workshops twice a month at The Create Place in Bethnal Green, in which you are invited to bring along your old or damaged clothing to get the advice and space needed to fix them up.
