CATH On the Mend family upcycling

On the Mend is an upcycling project from Churches Action for the Homeless promoting the positive impacts of getting together to learn new skills, connecting with your community and reusing rather than buying new.

On the Mend will offer two ‘join in and make’ workshops showing creative ways to reuse fabric. Our first workshop will be creating decorated chalk paint jars for all your crafty bits and bobs and the afternoon workshop will be making macramé plant hangers from pre loved t-shirts. On the Mend is about getting people involved and coming together through making and mending these workshops are open to all (suitable for children over 12).

Parent and child – suitable for all ages

All our workshops are FOC but you may want to consider a donation to CATH On the Mend.
