Repair What You Wear is a personal response to austerity and climate change, a recognition of the need that small things will make a difference to individuals and society. Clothes mending can save money and reduce landfill at a time that both are essential but when mending skills have all but disappeared. Set up and funded by a former retail buyer and a graphic designer, the teaching is clear and accessible, designed to empower when we can all feel helpless in the face of change.
