Breathe new life into your old clothes with this 1 hour-long session teaching the basics of fashion first aid.

Learn how to revive tired, damaged clothes from two adept clothes whisperers: mending master Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald and stain slayer Christina Reitano.

Erin Lewis-Fitzgerald is Australia's leading clothes-mending practitioner, author of the book Modern Mending. Her mending has been displayed in art exhibitions in Melbourne and Adelaide and she now teaches mending internationally to an online audience. She is passionate about repair in all its forms; in 2014 she founded Bright Sparks, a social enterprise that repaired and reused electrical appliances, diverting more than 15 tonnes of e-waste from landfill.

She teaches people tricks for cleaning, repairing and altering clothes through her insta handle @fashion.first.aid
