Make Your Own Sashiko Patch #GreenWithPride
12th June 2022, Fairbairn House, 72 Sackville St, Manchester
Event Full Details:
Mending clothes is a brilliant way to help reduce environmental impact by extending the life of clothes you already own, keeping them out of landfill.
Sashiko is a Japanese stitching technique which can be used in mending clothes. In this session, we will learn this easy method of hand stitching to make a patch, with take home instructions so you can use it to fix any clothes, or just spruce an item up. We’ll also give you written instructions so you can take your learning home to mend your clothes.
This session will be led by Ellie (she/her), our Women’s Programme Coordinator. Ellie is a self-taught sewer who likes to give things a go without worrying about if they’re perfect or not!
This session is suitable for all levels of abilities, from absolute beginners to experienced sewers. We welcome people to bring their skills and knowledge to the space to share with others.
This event is for all self-identifying lesbian, gay, bi, queer or questioning women, trans women, non-binary/genderfluid people wishing to access a women-centred space, and for those whose gender identity includes woman some or all of the time.
Green With Pride is a joint project between LGBT Foundation and Hubbub UK, generously funded by the Together With Our Planet fund from National Lottery Community Fund. The aim of this campaign is to make climate action accessible to LGBTQ+ communities through workshops, tips, and events.
