Scrap Sewing

TRAID’s hand sewing sessions are a quick and easy way to put recycling and reuse into practice, and improve craft and needlework skills at the same time. Pupils get creative with scraps of fabrics, scavenged safety pins and discarded buttons turning textile waste into a brooch, accessory or craft piece they can take home. In the process, they will learn or refresh basic sewing and customisation skills. Creatively reusing waste encourages pupils to value the materials around them rather than throwing them into the bin.
