About fast fashion therapy
A sewing workshop encouraging repair, up-cycling and remodelling of used clothes, looking to break our habit to always buy new. Fix holes in jeans, darn jumpers, shorten sleeves or create a new outfit from something already in the wardrobe. Bring along an item of clothing to repair or re-work into something new. Or practice basic techniques on the examples provided. Help will be given with ideas and basic sewing knowledge. Suitable for beginner sewers who need some help or more experienced sewers looking for a dedicated space and time to sew. We are a friendly and collaborative group, be prepared to share ideas and help others.
Meet The Tutors
SARAH RICHARDS & ELEANOR TULL
We are both textile designers with a special interest in sustainability. Sarah is the founder of Olive Road London, an independent vintage fabric shop. Initially taught by her Nan, she studied Fashion Design for four years at the London College of Fashion.
Eleanor’s current practice looks to encourage greater participation in making, altering and upcycling our clothes as a way for fashion to be more unique, playful and sustainable.
We both separately applied to run sustainable fashion workshops at the Create Place - St Margaret’s House teamed us up, and Fast Fashion Therapy was born! Our workshop offers a therapeutic space for slowing down and taking a more mindful approach to everyday life.
