What’s it all about?
Being able to mend our clothes is an important skill that serves us
throughout life. Whether it’s repairing that denim jacket, darning some
woolly socks, reinforcing elbows or the dreaded crotch mend! It gives
our favourite items of clothing extra life and longevity. And memories.
Sometimes subtlety is key, but sometimes go big or go home! That is,
why not mend visibly, colourfully, playfully and beautifully. Without a
doubt when other’s see your darning repairs, they’ll ask how you did.
It’s not that tricky, and well worth learning!
What will we cover?
This class has been designed to introduce beginner sewers to different techniques and methods for sewing, making and repairing clothing and textiles. This edition focuses on darning, which is
particularly great for a holey socks and jumper elbows.
All tools provided, but bring in an item to get to work on! Or learn and practice with sample fabric if needed.
