PRODUCT INFORMATION

This is a fantastic workshop, and here is the next opportunity to come and make something beautiful out of a worn out garment.  Join us for a Slow Stitch and Visible Mending Techniques class here with the fantastic Charlotte from A Nest of Gentle Makers.   Charlotte will introduce you to the moderen visible mending techniques which is an amalgamation of Japanese Boro using sahiko stitching and other traditions, where running stitch is used to quilt and reinforce garments.  Using small running stitches you can be as neat and tidy as you like or completely relaxed and free! 

About your Teacher:

Charlotte from A Nest of Gentle Makers has had a passion for textiles and making since childhood. She is a keen believer in mending and derives great satisfaction from continuing the life of a favourite jumper or cardigan. She is a free spirit (messy) darner so is thrilled with the new interest in visible mending rather than aiming for an invisible repair!

Class Size:

Maximum class size of 8.

Skills:

This course is for all abilities.

Materials:

You will need to bring a pair of jeans or something similar to repair, and some decorative fabrics to repair with. Charlotte will have small sewing kits and will provide small remnants for you to practice on before you tackle your own project.  You will need a small budget on the day for sashiko needles and japanese fabrics should you wish to use them.  Bar aprons will be available to purchase if you do not bring something to mend.

Duration:

1 half day

Venue:

Workshops are held in an airy and spacious venue, four minute's walk from the Clothkits shop.
