Sustainable Saturday surgeries are 4-hour sessions held by Little hands design at the London School of Mosaic located near Hampstead heath (181 Mansfield Rd, London NW3 2HP). Cost: £35

"During our fantastic Sustainable Saturday Surgeries we will dive into the world of mending, altering and thrifting. What a great excuse to go through your wardrobe, sort out garments you never wear, things which need repairing or can be turned into something else or maybe even swapped or donated. This session is a great way to pick up lots of hand- and machine sewing skills, design with things you already have, pick up useful tips and tricks and have a giggle and a chat with like-minded people. Suitable for everyone from 8 years to very wise!" (as advertised on Little Hands design website)
