The Art of Mending

45.00

In this workshop, we will be exploring the art of mending, sometimes called sashiko—a form of decorative reinforcement stitching.

When:

Sunday, March 24th, 3 - 5 pm

Where:

The Wilder Textile Art Studio in the Emerson Suite 107a

About the Class:

Gather 2-3 of your favorite, well-worn clothing items and we will explore creative ways to mend holes and give new life to your favorite garments. There will not be much formal instruction to this class, rather we will provide guidance, inspiration and materials to assist you in mending your clothes. No previous sewing experience is required. You will want to bring woven (non-stretchy) items such as denim jeans, linen tops or dresses, cotton or wool button-up shirts. Note, that some heavier items such as thick canvas or wool might not work with the needles provided. Do not bring knit items such as sweaters or other stretchy clothing items, the method we are using will not work well with these materials. We will be practicing the slow art of wabi-sabi hand stitching. In addition you will also have access to our sewing machine and serger, however you must have previous sewing experience to use the machines. Come celebrate the art of slow fashion!
