TRAID are delighted to be running a series of free clothes repair workshops organised by Waltham Forest Council alongside Restart Project, Shed Homewares and Dr Bike. Come and learn the skills to repair the holes in your jumpers or the rips in your jeans and give longer life to your clothing.

Bring along one or two items of clothes that are in need of repair and we will teach you how to fix them. If you don’t have anything to repair but would still like to take part and learn mending skills then we will have some clothes for you to practice on. All materials included, however if you have a broken zip, please do bring along a replacement zip with you, which you can purchase from a local haberdashery shop.
