Two sessions: November 8th and 15th 2:00pm - 4:30pm $125
Whether you're looking for a fun way to keep wearing your favourite jeans or sweater as they get better with age, to create a family heirloom, or to challenge capitalism, visible mending is a wonderful way to celebrate garments and household textiles! During the first class, we'll look at repairing woven materials - jeans, linens, or button-down shirts. In the second class, we'll look at repairing knits - sweaters, blankets, or tee shirts. Bring an item in each week that you hope to repair, or request samples to help you get confident before you take the plunge on that precious textile. This workshop will provide you with some basic knowledge for continuing your mending - it is unlikely you will finish mending your garments within the class time. Experience with hand-sewing and embroidery is an asset but not a requirement.
