About the Event
Want to rescue your favourite jumper from moths? Bored of holey denim? Or do your socks and tights deserve a longer lifespan? Right now we should all be more conscious of trying to make our clothes last longer and in this workshop you will learn a variety of techniques to keep them out of landfill or away from the ragbag! From darning holes in socks, jumpers and other knitted garments to patching denim and creating elbow patches, you will learn a set of skills that would make your grannies proud.
Bring along your own items of clothing that require some stitched love or practice the techniques on the samples provided. (This does sound a little bit like you'll be darning my socks for me but it will be much more exciting than that!)
This workshop is in association with LoveCrafts. Your ticket price covers all materials and light refreshments.

Crafting is so much more than making. It's the connection between like-minded souls, it’s learning new skills and sharing your passion. It's that fuzzy feeling from making something with your own hands. It’s pure joy. And it’s the reason LoveCrafts exists. Click here for more about LoveCrafts.
