Mending is more than the practical act of sewing on a button, or stitching up a torn seam, or darning a hole in a sock – it is evidence of our care, attention, patience and resourcefulness. It can be an effective act of resistance to fast fashion and relentless consumerism, it slows our heart rate and improves our mood as we stitch slowly, over and over. This workshop will introduce some basic mending skills: threading a needle, “loving” your thread, making a tailor’s knot, working a running stitch, and weaving with your needle. All supplies will be provided, just bring a garment that needs some TLC.
You must register in advance for all workshops and events. Workshops have limited space – spots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. A waiting list will be kept for workshops that are full. Register early – don’t be disappointed!
Registration for GAC members begins on March 13th.
Registration for the public begins on March 14th.
