MEND is back again after a popular first event, hosting an evening in a friendly space where you’ll learn to mend your clothes. Too many mendable clothes are thrown away, so come along and prolong the life of your favourite jumper. From patching jeans, to replacing buttons, the team will guide, assist and provide all tools and materials. MEND will be an evening of mending, meeting and sharing skills.
MEND is run by Decent - a Glasgow based organisation whose goal is to explore the potential of sewing for forming new communities and encouraging positive local change.
