Saturday 27 February 10.30am - 12.00pm

Learn the art of darning

Online Event


with Tricia Sharpe

What you will learn

Are your favourite knitted garments unwearable because of holes or pulls?

Are you keen to learn how to repair them rather than buy new ones?

We are all learning more about the resources required to make our clothes and the problems of ‘fast fashion’. Give your garments a longer life and learn how to repair them. You will then be able to use your new skills whenever required!

What you need

The workshops will be via Zoom.

You need a set-up that will leave both hands free with some space for working with your garment.


You will need to have the knitted garment to hand that you wish to repair – or an old woolly sock for practising.

Some thin knitting or darning wool that you think will look good with your garment

A large blunt-ended needle with an eye big enough for the yarn

Small sharp scissors

A darning mushroom (optional)


One x 1 ½ hour session by Zoom


Saturday 27 Feb at 10.30 am – 12.00 pm
