Visible mending workshop
About this workshop:
Have a favourite knit that you can’t part with but have no idea how to mend it? Or perhaps you have a plain knit that needs uplifting? Then this is the workshop for you, we will carefully guide you through the cathartic process of visible mending or darning, to repair, customise and rejuvenate your knitwear!
In this 2-hour beginner level workshop, you will be given all the skills to repair a stained or damaged knitted piece or give a second life to an older piece using traditional hand sewing visible mending / darning techniques, as well as a couple of interesting stitches to shake things up a bit.
The workshop will be held in the lovely PLATFORM Store at St. Christopher’s Place, surrounded by beautiful sustainable independent brands. You will have a welcome glass of bubbly, cheeky mince pies and 2 hours engrossed in learning new skills and enjoy interacting with like-minded people.
With each ticket sale, £5 will be donated to the https://theor.org/ a charity that helps communities with clothing waste poverty in the global south.
