Textile Workshop | Visible Mending

Saturday, October 7, 2023, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Practice sustainability and extend the life of your textiles with artist, teacher, and author of Mending Matters and Make Thrift Mend, Katrina Rodabaugh. This workshop explores basic stitches and patterns; how to repair a garment based on  fabric, thread, utility, beauty, design elements, and more; and culminates in the chance to repair a garment in need of mending. Basic sewing and stitching skills are required. 

We will provide 100% cotton thread, metal needles, wooden ruler, and a handout. Participants may bring personal tools or use the provided shared tools.  

Please bring:

  • A textile made of woven fabric to mend: denim, linen, and cotton are great choices, as well as household textiles like quilts, tea towels, and tableclothes. This class will not cover stretchy fabrics like leggings or t-shirts. 
  • Patches of the same fiber and weight as the textile you wish to mend. 
  • Similar weight yarn, a tapestry needle, and darning egg if you wish to bring a knitted garment. 

 

Our hands-on Textile Workshops highlight the essential role textiles play in everyday life — from our clothes to our home and building interiors — and aim to educate about and inspire sustainable textile choices that are healthier for the environment and the garment supply chain.
