Event description

Description

'Mend with wisdom, mend with love. It will mend the earth at the same time.' - Yoko Ono


Ever ripped a pair of cherished jeans? Busted the elbows out of the most comfortable button-down? Moth holes in a wool skirt? It was not that long ago most people mended out of necessity. Now we live in a world where we are drowning in 'fast and cheap' options rendering clothing nearly disposable. To address sustainability in the fashion world we need to all re-commit to mending, as an act of rebellion, as a way to position ourselves in line our values. Mending is powerful, and empowering!

In this 2.5 hour workshop join Stacey Sproule in the discussion of mending philosophy, why mending is an important skill to have, learn about how to mend garments visibly with intricate Japanese Sashiko patterns, and learn quick and easy visible mends. All participants are encouraged to bring a ripped garment that needs repairs (woven fabrics work best, ie-jeans, button-up shirts, cotton dresses and skirts, any garment with minimal stretch.) No stitching experience necessary- all other materials will be provided.


**In an effort to make the space comfortable for everyone, please avoid the use of perfumes and fragrances.


Bonus: on the day of the workshop, participants will get 10% off all regularly-priced merchandise in our studio-shop.
