Mending connects us to our clothes and allows them to live longer lives. We are forced to stop, slow down and focus on our hands, threading in and out. It teaches us to preserve and waste less in this throw away fashion climate. In this course, you will learn a brief history on mending and begin to practice certain techniques which will help you look after your wardrobe.
Hastings (Station Plaza)
You will practice techniques on samples so you can mend cotton, linen and denim fabrics. Then you'll move on to mend your own garment.
