Course content of the Workshop: Mending clothes! 

Learn how to mend and rework your garments with Nadia, a Sustainable Fashion Designer who will guide you step by step through the process that she developed in her brand TLZ Movement clothes.
1.The world of materials:  Essential to learn how to treat the garment and which tool and technique use.
2. Creative Part:We will make hems, change zips, fitting and also patches from scratch to sew them on your garments. There is no need to have previous experience in sewing, if you are new at this you will probably end with one garment reworked instead of two, but with the skills to make the second one at home!
3. Sewing while chatting and enjoying a tea break:Overall We will be exploring the amazing world of alterations and how to give them a second chance to shine! 
DATE AND TIME: From July every second and third Saturday of the month from 10am to 13hs. 
PLACE: Craft Central E14 3AE, East London
VALUE: 80 pounds
MATERIALS and SNACKS: all included, but please bring a small notebook so you can take your own creative notes and some garments you want to mend or look too boring for you.
