Join us to explore current trends in visible mending with this fun and useful class. Learn about traditional mending stitches and then how to incorporate that tradition into something new and fun and great looking. Bring your favorite hole-filled denim, or any piece that you'd like to spice up be it a tote bag, tennis shoes, socks etc.
In this 2 hour workshop, we will learn the basics of 4 types of mending: exterior patches, interior patches, slow stitches, plus darning and weaving. You will leave with a patched to perfection piece of your choosing and hopefully a better understanding and appreciation for mending and maintenance versus throwing things out/replacing as well as the imperfections in things and people and how it all relates to overconsumption the slow fashion movement.
Workshop cost is $75 per participant. Mending supplies including threads, patching cloth, needles, thimbles etc will be provided as well as light refreshments. You bring your favorite distressed denim or item in need or rehab and a willingness to play.
This 2 hour class is limited to 4 participants per session. Registration will close 24 hours before the workshop. Need a last minute seat? Email us and we can try to get you in!
