August 7 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm$40.00
Join us outside in Ashby Community Garden to learn how to mend your clothes and well-used items. Mending is a meditative and slow-paced activity to soothe our often-busy lives. This workshop will allow mending beginners to learn the basics and continuing menders to hone their skills and add new embroidery stitches to their repertoire. We will work with the Japanese techniques of visible mending and patching to repair worn clothing and make it ever more personal.
We will provide a variety of fabrics and threads to use for your work during the hands-on portion of the workshop. You are welcome to bring a beloved item of clothing that needs to be mended to lengthen its life. If you have a sewing kit, do bring it: scissors, needles, pins, cloth scraps welcome as well.
Instructor Biography:Judith has taught handwork for many years, both at the East Bay Waldorf School and independently. She teaches pine needle basketry, tapestry weaving, and the art of Boro.
