Repair Cafe for Textiles and Clothing – Norwich

Event Date: 08/09/19

Sunday 8 September 2019, 11am – 3pm, Oxfam, 8-10 Magdalen Street, Norwich, NR3 1HU.

As part of Oxfam’s #secondhandseptember campaign, We Wear The Trousers are partnering with Oxfam Magdalen Street to run a drop-in repair cafe.

Bring your mending projects from home, or choose something from our ‘rag-bag’ to mend/upcycle and give a new lease of life.

This repair cafe is all about sharing stories, tips and skills with one another, in a relaxed environment, over a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. We’ll be doing simple mending by hand, like darning holes, patching, or replacing buttons. If you want to do something more adventurous, by all means bring your stuff and give it a go- as long as it can be done without a sewing machine. If you’ve never done any mending before, come along and see what you can learn!
