Learn to Creatively Mend Your Old Jumper
I'm very excited to announce that as part of the Craft Scotland Summer Show I will be taking two workshops on visible mending.
Loved Clothes Last
Visible Mending is a great way to keep your favourite pieces of knitwear lasting longer, while giving them a slightly new look. I love that mended pieces can be fun, and they change as time goes on, much as we do ourselves. My aim for this workshop is to give you the tools to repair your knitwear and make it last longer- so I think of it as a zero waste workshop in a way!
Bring your favourite jumper back to life with creative Visible Mending
Bring your favourite jumper (or other knitwear) back to life with creative visible mending. With the aim of reducing waste and throwaway clothes, I will teach you how to mend your old knitwear in a creative way. I will guide you through the basics of darning, Swiss darning and decorative embroidery stitches to enable you to creatively mend your piece of knitwear. Materials and refreshments provided (but do please bring your holey jumper or hat or gloves with you!).
