Have holes in your sweaters? Threadbare jeans? Buttons falling off? Shirts coming apart at the seams? Don’t toss it – learn how to fix it!

Join Charlie Best (AU School of Art & Design) for an introductory lesson in clothing repair. No prior experience necessary. If you have articles of clothing that need fixing, bring them with you! Otherwise, scrap fabric will be provided to practice on.

The textile industry is one of the biggest sources of waste and pollution. A great way to reduce your environmental impact is to make your clothes last a long time or buy them secondhand, purchasing new textiles as little as possible.

This event will take place in the BookEnd Lounge at Herrick Library.

4:30-5:30
