Repair your clothes with visible mending

TUESDAY, Sep 19, 2023 AT 4 PM – 6 PM

Do you have a favorite piece of clothing with a tear or worn-out patch? Instead of tossing it away, why not learn the art of visible mending and transform it into a unique and personalized masterpiece? In this hands-on workshop, we'll delve into the world of clothes repairing, combining embroidery and visible mending techniques.
During the workshop, you'll discover the beauty of visible mending as a sustainable and creative approach to extending the lifespan of your cherished garments. We will guide you through various mending techniques, including patching, darning, and stitching, while also exploring the art of embroidery as a means of embellishment.
By the end of this workshop, you'll not only have the knowledge and skills to mend your clothes but also a newfound appreciation for visible mending as a form of creative expression.

Note: Participants are encouraged to bring their own garments in need of repair, as well as any specific embroidery supplies they may already have.
