Fabricate is a new workshop, open alongside the Mens’ Shed & Community Workshop at 15 Gordon Road. Fabricate is an extension of that social enterprise, created to re-energise the art of make and mend. 

Their focus is fabric and they’re running workshops to teach everything from changing a zipper to drafting a pattern. Their vision is to provide an equipped space for learning and sharing valuable skills in the hope to focus on the problem of fast fashion, heightening awareness of buying for longevity and repairing for posterity. Right now, they’re after donations of fabric, threads and trims, so if you have anything stored which you no longer need or have any questions please email fabricatewanaka@gmail.com
