Learn to give old garments new life with mending expert, Carlyn Clark
- Wilson Street
This workshop will explore hand stitching and embroidery techniques emphasizing textile repair and mending. Bring an old garment or create a patch to take home. Instead of throwing away a torn or damaged piece of clothing, participants will be shown how the damage offers the opportunity to create a new surface design -- enhancing the beauty of an object while creating a story relaying its history. During the workshop, we will take time to think about and explore the versatility and strength of embroidery for mark making, emphasizing the slow, meditative rhythm of hand stitching and the pleasure of having time to make and mend. NOTE: Supplies will be provided. Feel free to bring a garment to be mended as well as any textile scraps / patches you'd like to use.
