On Tuesday November 14, the store will host three workshops given by fashion designer Lorraine Mitchell.

From 10am to 11.30am is a Sew and Create workshop looking at sewing, including attaching buttons and zips.

From 12-nooon until 1.30pm you can Get to Grips with Zips, looking at the different types available and how you attach them.

From 2pm until 3.30pm is an Upcycle and Relove workshop, where you can learn about alterine, mending and updating clothing you already have and love.

Lynne Walker, Director of Primark Cares said: “We’re delighted to be rolling out our repair workshops across our store network in the UK. Our goal is to strengthen the durability of our clothes and keep clothes in use for longer as part of our commitment to become a more circular business. Educating customers on repair is one small step forward in our journey.”
