Extend the life of your clothing, while creating functional art and building vital and utilitarian sewing skills. This workshop series focuses on the multi-functional use of hand sewing to transform your well-loved threads into beautifully mended, unique pieces of clothing. Over the course of the class, you will learn how to turn the chore of mending into a creative act as we cover beginning hand-sewing techniques and a variety of hand-sewing stitches. We will dig deeper into the art of mending by incorporating Japanese Boro patchworking techniques, as well as learning how to work with a variety of fabrics. Bring a denim jacket, jeans, a tote bag, or anything else you want to add patchwork to.
