Darn! Do you have clothes that need fixing?

Don’t throw out clothes with small holes and tears, come and learn how you can fix them at home!

UC Sustainability in partnership with OpSoc, UCSA and UC Wellbeing are running a darning and alterations workshop this Thursday 6th May from 10am-12pm in the Te Rua Makerspace, located in Puaka-James Hight L2.

Bring along your clothes (maybe some you picked up at the Clothes Swap on Wednesday) and our talented creatives will show you how to either darn (hand-sew) or use the sewing machines to alter and/or mend your clothes. How exciting!
