Mend Your Clothes: Mend The Planet!

Learn slow, mindful mending as an antidote to fast-fashion!

Using naturally dyed linen patches, wool and cotton threads prepared in yesterday’s workshop, learn how to repair any hole in your clothes. Learn darning, patching and stitching techniques for beautiful, visible mends. Bring along your holey socks/jeans/trousers/anything you want to mend! There will also be a demonstration of how to fix basic clothes issues and the opportunity to take home a patch or two to mend things that you have at home. We will discuss how textiles and fashion fits into the bigger picture of regenerative solutions to the climate crisis and how a mending revolution can help dismantle the system!
