Learn how to give old clothes a new lease of life.

Essex County Council are running a series of basic sewing courses aimed at encouraging people to revamp their old things instead of throwing them out.

The Braintree session will take place at the Adult Learning Centre in Spinks Lane, Witham on February 26 between 10am and 1pm.
