EMBROIDER-MENDING WORKSHOP - SAT 14 AUG 2-5PM
Saturday 14 AUG 2-5PM
Dive into the art of repairing your garments and other personal fabric articles!
In this workshop, we explore how to mend your textiles creatively with embroidery techniques. A variety of methods will be introduced to cover up holes/stains and prevent tears from getting bigger.
Drawing inspirations from age-old textile-repair traditions like boroboro in Japan or Kantha in India (or the old-school thrifty habits of our grandparents!), the movement of visible mending is growing. A beautiful mend can give new life to a piece or simply stitch a functional mend to extend the lifespan of your favourite pieces, think of that piece that keeps getting holes due to so much wear and love. Beyond mending, the techniques are also good ways to refresh tired fabric pieces.
Participants will go home with a mending sampler and can also bring their personal items for discussion on tips for mending.
