During this 2 hour workshop you will be given an introduction in to the art of Darning, a textiles mending technique traditionally used on knitwear, but can also be used on any fabric to help you mend or up-cycle your favourite clothes, using an interesting check pattern weaving method.
We will also show you invisible mending if you're after a more subtle approach to your mending.
You will leave the workshop feeling inspired to continue fixing and rejuvenating all of your favourite pieces that need a bit of TLC or even if you just want to customise your jumpers or jeans to make them a bit more exciting.
This will be a hand sewing class, so no need to be a pro on the sewing machine! Which means you will be able to learn the techniques and continue to fix your clothing without any machinery.
The workshop will take place at the address below:
Locus of Walthamstow
1 Chingford Road
London E17 4PW
Locus of Walthamstow is situated in the lovely yellow and blue building on Chingford Road and is a 15 min walk from Walthamstow Central Tube Station.
