What you will learn -

Are your favourite garments becoming unwearable with holes and frays?

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 using the Japanese art of visible mending: Sashiko.

You will then be able to use your new skills whenever required!

Session 1: Learn about the background to Sashiko, examples of functional and decorative use of techniques, sample demonstration and practice. You will be given a sample to complete at home.

Bring own repair project to session 2 or work on a decorative piece.

Session 2: Share completed samples, look at individual projects and decide approach, work on individual projects with help from Tricia.
