Current opportunity

The Communities’ Reduce Reuse & Recycle aims to provide a space for people to learn to sew, knit or just spend a couple of hours with people who enjoy doing crafts. The project aims to encourage the participants to reduce & reuse their waste, by repairing their clothes and reusing them. We are looking for someone who is competent and confident in practical sewing to lead the clothing repair, with the opportunity to get involved in activities on Mondays between 10.30am to 1pm.
