ReMode on Paisley High Street are delighted to announce that they are restarting their popular Meddle & Mend workshops – sessions that are open for all to come along and learn skills in garment repair and upcycling.

The first session is on Monday 12th July 7pm-9pm and the workshops will continue regularly throughout the year on the second Monday in each month.


Do you have a garment lurking at the back of your wardrobe that just a little tlc to bring it back to life? ReMode can help!  With everything from sewing on a button to taking up a hem, adjusting a waistband or fixing a zip, this informal and practical hands-on workshop will show you how to fix your clothes and save them from landfill.

Just bring along the garment you want to work on.  All other materials and equipment will be provided.  No experience necessary.

ReMode’s project manager Jane Dixon said “We’re really excited to be back!  This is the first time we’ve been able run sessions for the public since March last year.  We know that lots of people have rekindled their love of sewing over the last year – or even taken it up for the first time.  These workshops are perfect if you’re wanting a bit of face to face help with a project you’re working on, or if you want a few pointers on how to get started on repairs and mending.”  


With a few simple adjustments ReMode transform their shop into a spacious workshop which allows plenty of room for social distancing.  Numbers are currently restricted due to Covid regulations so booking is essential.  https://remodeyouth.org/tc-events/meddle-mend-12th-july-2021/  . There’s a small booking fee of £3.50 per session to secure a place.  Masks must be worn throughout the session.

This workshop is open to all.  Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
