RMIT Creative Social X Repair Café

Do you have a favourite dress with a big old tear? Or a beloved jumper that now has a massive hole in it?

At the Repair Cafe, we share repair and mending techniques to help you extend the life span of treasured items of clothing. Join us for a cup of tea, a chat and mend or modify something from your wardrobe! As part of RMIT's Sustainability Week come and join us. 

All are welcome, whether sewing and crafting is your jam, you're a total newbie looking to learn, or you just want to hang out and share a cup of tea and a chat. 

What to expect:

  • We'll share clothing and textiles repair techniques that you can try on the night
  • Discover different repair techniques ranging from inconspicuous to decorative, functional or flamboyant
  • We will consult on your garments needs and share the best repair technique for your situation
  • You can bring multiple garments to repair if you like - our capacity to consult will vary depending on attendance on the night
  • Share a yarn about your favourite item of clothing - what memories does it hold? What does it mean to you?

Can't wait to see you there! RSVP now to get your free ticket!
