TRAID have partnered with the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to bring local residents the opportunity to learn one-on-one with a member of TRAID’s repair team to develop or improve the skills needed to fix their clothes.

Participants will need to pre-book a timed slot to access their clothes repair tutorial, including information about the item that needs fixing, and will be required to bring proof of address on the day. The event is part of a series of monthly repair cafes across the 7 North London boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest. TRAID will be heading up the clothes repair in Haringey and Islington.

In the instance where the garment will take longer than the allotted 30 minute time to finish there will be an area, with access to materials and equipment, to complete the repair.

More information will be available shortly including the types of repairs that can be mended so keep an eye on the NLWA website here to book your place.
