REPAIR YOUR JEANS: THE ART OF VISIBLE MENDING, Weds 22nd January, 6.30-8.30pm

REPAIR YOUR JEANS: THE ART OF VISIBLE MENDING

 (With Tricia Sharpe)

 What you will learn

  • Are your favourite jeans unwearable with holes and frays?
  • Are you keen to learn how to repair them rather than buy new ones?

Denim is one of the world’s most resource-hungry fabrics to make. Give your jeans a longer life and learn how to darn them using the Japanese art of visible mending: Shashiko. Learning to use a patterned running stitch you will then be able to use your new skills whenever required!

What you need to bring

Just bring your jeans along – and if you have any fabric or thread you want to use to repair them, bring that too.

 Materials provided

We will provide a range of threads and sewing kit, fabric scraps.  Fabric squares can also be purchased at the shop
