Fairfield West Sewing Hub (2018)
The Fairfield West Sewing Hub is a partnership between I.C.E.’s Multicultural Women’s Hub
and Fairfield West Community Hub to deliver workshops for women from Multicultural backgrounds wanting to learn more about sewing and tailoring to equip the participants with the skills to set up their own alteration businesses and use creative avenues to sell their works.
The workshops run every Monday morning and are facilitated by Fairfield West Community Hub parent and seamstress Alyaa, with textile artist Nicole Barakat delivering some selected sessions and workshops. The women are given the opportunity to experiment with fabrics and bring in inspiration from traditional designs and patterns.
The workshops run every Monday, 9.30am to 11.30am at the Fairfield West Community Hub in Fairfield West Public School.
