Visible Mending :Introduction to Darning Workshop : Sat 12th Sept 10.30-1pm
Visible mending is a great way to repair your old clothes, and turn holes into design features in a creative way.
This workshop will focus on visibly mending knitwear - ideal if you’ve had moths, a chewy puppy, or worn through areas over time!
This 2.5 hour introduction to darning workshop will cover colourful approaches to darning and Swiss darning on knitwear. Learn how to repair your knitwear with practical and decorative darning methods, and learn how to reinforce worn areas with Swiss darning.
A knitted piece of fabric for each person to work on will be provided, plus yarns in a suitable weight for it for you to work with. There will be examples of how these techniques can be used to look at and discuss, and feel free to bring your worn knitwear along if you would like! All materials and equipment provided. No previous experience necessary.
