About the Workshop

Here’s your chance to fix that annoying rip or repair a button or zipper on a garment you want to keep wearing, but haven’t been able to. You are in good hands with a capable host who can make the art of practical stitching accessible in a friendly atmosphere. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be able to save time and money by doing more clothing self-repair. Maybe you can even help family and friends when they need some practical stitching done.

Join us from 3-5pm on October 5th, for a two-hour basic clothing repair techniques workshop hosted by our lovely host, Didem. Before throwing out our ripped clothes, we can sometimes make small repairs and continue to wear them. In this workshop, we are going to learn how to repair holes in our garments, fix hems, and re-attach missing buttons with hand stitching. The first hour of this workshop will consist of practicing on samples and then we will work on the participants’ garments which need repairing.

She has designed and produced various garments for different special events. She prepared a women’s daily wear collection which was shown at Threads 2019. She has made accessories and jewellery for women and costumes and toys for kids.

She is also a graduate of the City and Regional Planning Department of Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.

She has since decided to change her career path and focus on her fashion projects.
