Visible Mending borrows techniques from traditional patching and darning. Students will learn to adapt those techniques to create beautiful repairs that strengthen, embellish and celebrate the life of your textiles. This workshop covers mending straight, bias and three-corner tears, holes and threadbare places in jeans, t-shirts and bags. Students will practice by creating a small mending sampler and then work on repairing one of their own garments.
