We are so excited to bring Emma into the studio for a one off mending masterclass!

Darning is highly therapeutic, rewarding and is a commitment of care that brings us closer to our possessions.

If we can extend the lives of the things we own and embrace a more conscious consumer mindset, we will have a positive effect on people and
our planet.

What will I learn?

This workshop is an introduction to darning for complete beginners and is also suitable for knitters and textile gurus alike.

The session starts with a presentation in history of mending and cultural influences and techniques.

  • we chat tools, materials and equipment.
  • instructions and swatches
  • fundamentals of  secure mends
  • spark inspiration for the versatility of the techniques

Followed by the opportunity to explore ideas and solutions to your garments that we hope you will bring along on the night.

Really excited to breathe new life into your clothes!

What should I bring?

Nothing! All materials will be provided, but we do encourage you to bring along some gnarly, munted and holey knitted garments.

This is a fun, hands-on, casual session that spreads the joy of bringing life back to damaged clothing – combining form and function in a way that will serve attendees for
years to come.

Although feel free to bring your own equipment too!
