We're working with social enterprise Kundakala to support their Make and Mend sewing programme at our local Stamford Street community space in Lambeth.

Published: 12/12/2023

The programme is for women and is open to anyone living on the Stamford Street Estate. So, if you live on the estate and want to develop your sewing skills or learn something new, this free six-month programme is for you!  

What's involved? 

A professional tutor and seamstress deliver the programme. They'll start teaching you the basics of using a sewing machine, progressing to smaller projects such as cloth bags and make-up cases and finishing with you designing and creating your very own item of clothing. 

They'll give you a free start-up sewing kit and sewing machine when you complete the sixth-month course. They can also advise and support you on starting your own business if this interests you. 

Dates and times 

The six-month programme starts on Tuesday, 23 January 2024, with a taster session on 16 January to help you try it out before you sign up. 

You must attend one in-person session every Tuesday from 9.30am-12.30pm at our Stamford Street Community Space. You'll need to regularly attend and engage with the course to graduate at the end of the six months. 

You can find out more by contacting our Community Investment Lead for South London, Anna Shamoon, at anna.shamoon@peabody.org.uk
