Make Do and Mend Workshop - 'Textiles to Toys'

Veolia Nottinghamshire, NG19 0FL
Tuesday 22nd October 2019   9am - 12.30pm
FREE WORKSHOP

Join Veolia in Mansfield for a free Make do and Mend workshop at the Materials Recovery Facility.

Make Do and Mend Workshop - 'Textiles to Toys'

Perfect for an October Half Term holiday project - learn how to make a new toy from old fabrics. 

The focus of these sessions is to reduce textile waste by teaching people basic sewing skills to mend, repair, alter and reuse fabrics into new purposes reminding everyone that textiles should not go in the kerbside recycling bin.

The workshop will include a tour of the facility where you can see first hand what happens to the items you put into your recycling bin and the importance of putting the correct things in.

For all the workshops we will try to use recycled or donated materials and fabric to ensure as much material is reused in Nottinghamshire as possible.

Who can attend?

Workshops are open to any ability - from people who have never used a sewing machine through to experienced sewers.

Attendees must be from one of the 7 Boroughs and Districts of Nottinghamshire (excluding the City).

Each session is usually open to a maximum of up to 10 people, visitors must be aged 7 and above.

We allow 1 session per person per year to ensure as many residents can take part as possible.
