14jan1:00 PM4:00 PMEmbellish and Repair:The Art of Mending

Event Details

With the modern availability of fast fashion, it is easy to forget that our well-worn garments don’t have to be disposable. During this three hour class you will learn how to both repair beloved but timeworn clothing and refresh items asking for customization. We will go through patching, darning, and piecing techniques to arm you with a basic toolkit of mending skills. Then, Katie will guide you through the creative repair and embellishment of your own items.

Inspired by traditional methods but encouraging of experimentation, this class will interplay utilitarian skills with intuitive use of color, line, and pattern. Beginning sewers are welcome! Each participant will walk away with their garments transformed, a handy informational zine, and the know-how to care for and customize more items in the future.
