THE wartime mentality of ‘make do and mend’ will be rekindled with a free fashion workshop.
Havant craft charity Making Space has teamed up with the D-Day Museum, in Southsea, to offer free taster sessions in Gosport.
The project focuses on the Overlord Embroidery that is on permanent display at the D-Day Museum.
The free workshops are open to all, and textile artist June Allnut is keen to involve all local residents, particularly those in the armed forces community in and around Gosport.
Participants are invited to explore the idea of creating fashion by reworking textiles.
June said: ‘We hope it will evoke a sense of time and reference of the period, taking something old and forgotten and transforming it into something wearable and loved.’
The next session is on Saturday at Gosport Discovery Centre from 10am until midday and 1pm to 3pm.
