About the event Click to get info

Waltham Forest Council has partnered with Traid to run a mini-series of 3 free textiles repair cafés this Autumn. Learn from the experts the skills you need to fix, upcycle or restyle clothes. If you have your own broken garments bring them along!

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the issues facing the fashion industry and take part in Traid’s 23% campaign, making the fashion industry more sustainable. These will be based at the new Arbeit Studio creative fashion hub, in partnership with Fashion District and the London College of Fashion.

The events are as follows:

  • Thursday 19 September: 6pm to 8pm
  • Thursday 17 October: 6pm to 8pm, including a talk on sustainable fashion and Traid’s 23% Campaign by Andrea Speranza, Traid’s Head of Campaigns and Education.
  • Saturday 23 November: 11am to 1pm
