Mending is a workshop that explores textile repair on knitted and wool textiles, how you do it and why you do it. It considers the tenderness and care of mending. The aim of the workshop is to practice mending techniques on knit. You will learn about artists working with repair. You will learn and develop skills in woven and fake ‘knitted’ darning. There will also be an opportunity to work on repairing any sweaters and socks and wool accessories, that you own and that have holes. Please bring along any damaged wool and knitted items that you would like to discuss repair options for. Darning materials will be provided. No previous darning, knitting, needle based experience is necessary.
Classes are from 10:30am-4:30pm with a 45 minute break (over 5 hours of class time).
From November 9th all workshop will be from 10:30am-4pm with a half hour break.
*Price includes all materials but please feel free to bring along much loved pieces that need mending in knit or cloth.
