Decorative Mending Workshop

  • Edinburgh Remakery 127 Leith Walk, EH6 8NP Edinburgh (map)

Use your creativity to transform your worn and torn clothing into something to be admired and re-loved.

Ever heard the saying “It’s the imperfections that make things beautiful”? Here at the Remakery, we couldn’t agree more! In this workshop we will be taking damaged, worn and over-loved items of clothing, and making them beautiful once more.

Bring along any damaged item of clothing – a jumper or t-shirt with holes in it, a ripped pair of trousers or jeans – and we’ll show you how to cleverly disguise faults and flaws using coloured and patterned scraps of recycled fabric to create beautiful decorative and unique designs.

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels and will teach you simple hand and machine stitching techniques which you can use time and again to repair your clothes. Teas and coffees will also be provided to keep those creative juices flowing.

Full price - £30
Concession price - £22.50
