Central Library was delighted to host Europe Direct Waterford’s Repair and Recycle workshop on Saturday the 24th of June. 12 participants took part in the free workshop, which was part of a project run in partnership with Walton Institute, SETU following on from a very successful Clothes Swap in Central Library on Wednesday 21st of June.  The multi-talented Caroline O’Toole, Fashion Graduate, Sewing Skills tutor and Childrenswear designer facilitated the workshop.

Each participant brought an item of clothing to the event and learned how to alter and upcycle clothes, including how to resize jeans, upcycle a fitted skirt into a camisole, add a fringe to the bottom of a dress, ladder stitch a rip in a dress, replace the waistband of jeans with a stretch waistband.

Feedback on the day was very positive with participants enjoying the warm and friendly atmosphere as well as the opportunity to learn and develop new sustainable skills.
