Clothes Mending Interactive Follow-along Webinar

This series of workshops focuses on a different repair skill in each session, for example how to mend small holes and seams, how to sew on a button, basic hand stitching or how to darn a sock. We can also offer a refresher session for those who have sewing machines but haven’t used them for a while. Participants will be invited to sew-along at home and complete or at least start their repairs during the session.

Part of each session will also involve a live consultation where participants can send photos via the webchat of items they want to repair and the instructor will offer advice on how best to approach the job and what they might need.

With cleanliness and hygiene an important topic at the moment, each of these sessions will teach participants how to make two natural cleaning products they can use in their homes – all made with simple and inexpensive ingredients.

Participants will be invited to join in at home making the products along with the instructor.

Examples of sessions we can run include how to make a laundry liquid & dishwasher tablet, how to make a toilet cleaner & an all-purpose spray.

Zero Waste Cooking Webinar

As we grow more and more conscious of the negative impact of processed food and animal protein on our health, and with the majority of our waste being single-use food packaging, how can we look after ourselves, save money and reduce our use of plastics?

During this fun and interactive webinar, participants will be given ideas to reduce their food and plastic waste and learn how to make easy and tasty low waste plant based recipes, (either houmous, falafels and energy balls OR easy flat bread or no knead bread).

During the session participants can prep some of the products themselves, then use the recipe cards to finish off (and cook them!) later. All the recipes are vegan.

There will also be a Q&A segment and downloadable e-recipe cards available.
