Visible Mending Workshop
In this world obsessed with the cycle of consumerism, slow fashion is more important than ever. Reduce your impact on the environment (and on your wallet!) by mending items you already own. Visiting artist Amanda McLaurin will teach you mending skills that you can use to fix up vintage finds and to keep the items in your closet in good condition for years to come.
But don’t keep your mending a secret, make it a design feature by learning the art of visible mending! You’ll learn embroidery and Japanese boro stitching techniques to mend, reinforce, and add visual impact to your existing wardrobe. This includes basic hand-sewing techniques, how to create stitch patterns, and how to properly and beautifully reinforce clothing.
