Instructor: Jasmine Kornell
Saturday, October 15th
In this explorative workshop, you will learn how to repair clothing and cloth by hand through multiple mending techniques: darning, sashiko and appliqué. Along with building the fundamental techniques, special attention will be paid to problem-solving, historical applications and personal style. Students will create several initial samples to gain an understanding of the process and will then have the opportunity for guided time to play and experiment.
Most materials are provided—however, since the purpose of mending is to enhance and extend the life of a cloth, bringing your own projects to work on is strongly encouraged and preferred! Students are also welcome to bring additional yarns and fabrics for experimentation and sharing.
