Workshop: Mending and Maintenance at Galway City Museum

Come and learn how to mend and keep clothes looking their best for longer!

As part of Fashion Revolution Week 2024, Galway City Museum will host a free workshop showing participants how to do simple repairs on clothes, patching, darning, buttons, and zips – with Eimear Greaney (www.upsew.ie)

The first two hours will comprise a demonstration on how to mend various items. These repairs will include clothes donated to a local charity shop that could not be sold due to their poor condition. Once repaired, clothing will be returned to the charity shop for selling.

Afterwards, there will be a 30-minute demo on how to thread a sewing machine, change needles and deal with any other sewing dilemmas! Attendees are welcome to bring their own machines if they have any specific questions.

This event is free of charge, but places are limited so advance booking is strongly advised. Call the Museum on (091) 532460 or email museum@galwaycity.ie
