CANCELLED Visible Mending Workshop, Sunday 29th March 2020

Use your creativity to transform your worn and torn clothing into something to be admired and re-loved.

Ever heard the saying “It’s the imperfections that make things beautiful”? Here at the Remakery, we couldn’t agree more! In this workshop we will be taking damaged, worn and over-loved items of clothing, and making them beautiful once more.

Bring along your damaged items of clothing – anything denim or cotton with rips, tears or holes that you would like to patch or re-sew – and we’ll show you how to cleverly disguise faults and flaws using coloured and patterned scraps of recycled fabric to create beautiful decorative and unique designs.

This workshop is suitable for all skill levels and will teach you simple hand and machine stitching techniques which you can use time and again to repair your clothes. Teas and coffees will also be provided to keep those creative juices flowing.
