Repair your Clothing

**Important Coronavirus rules!!** The workshop follows the 2G rules. All participants must bring either proof of full vaccination or proof of recovery.

Breathe new life into damaged old textiles and learn a new skill that will last you a lifetime!

Darning is a needle-weaving technique of mending holes in fabrics. It can be used to create an invisible mend, or as a way to take a flaw and turn it into a stand-out feature. In this workshop we’ll go over the darning method and practice the technique before you start mending your own items. You can choose from a wide range of yarns to mend with, or bring your own. The workshop is taught by weaver and textile designer (and darning-addict) Emma Wood, in her design studio in Wedding.

Just bring your clothes or home textiles that are in need of some repair, and take home not only some newly-mended pieces, but also a skill that will last you a lifetime.

FAQ

*What kind of textiles can be repaired?*
This workshop is aimed at textiles with holes (from moths, tears, worn-out yarn, etc.) and can include items like: socks, sweaters, t-shirts, scarves, hats, blankets & cushions. If you’re bringing jeans, please only bring pairs with small holes, not with large tears (these need another mending method).

*Do I already need to know how to sew?*
No! This workshop is great for total beginners, even if you’ve never threaded a needle before. All you need is curiosity and at least one item with a hole in it!

*How many items should I bring?*
You can bring as many as you like, and then see how many you repair during the course of the workshop. The time for each repair will vary based on the size of the hole, the thickness of your repair yarn, and your natural sewing speed. You can probably expect to repair between 2-3 pieces during the workshop.

*What will I take home with me?*
A handy skill that will last a lifetime, your repaired items, a worksheet with the stitch diagrams, a darning needle, and your very own darning mushroom and embroidery hoop.

Very nice workshop at a great place with lovely host - highly recommended! Technique was shown in a way everyone could follow and try out, then we could work on our own things and managed to repair quite a lot of them in the time of the workshop. I am sure I can use it at home as well - and I am almost waiting for some new holes to show up ;-)

Susanne

Sehr lehrreich, sehr interessant und lustig! Emma ist eine wundervolle Gastgeberin, die sehr gut erklärt und mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht. Nach dem Workshop hat man Stopfen gelernt und auch schon etwas geübt.

Johanna

Jetzt bin ich über Löcher in meinen Klamotten sogar froh!
