A workshop exploring traditional mending techniques in order to prolong, preserve and repair garments. Mending by hand allows us time to contemplate both on the relationship we have with objects around us in a throwaway culture, as well as the meditational qualities of hand craft. Students are encouraged to bring along a garment which needs repairing.

Please bring a garment to repair*

*Please be aware this workshop is not suitable for those wishing to mend knitted garments as we will not be covering darning. Appropriate garment materials for this course are silk, cotton, linen, denim, hemp, twill etc.
