Join us for a hands-on workshop on visible mending, a sustainable and creative way to give your clothes a new life. Led by textile artist Meghan of Rosemarine Textiles, this workshop will cover the basics of darning a sock, mending jeans or clothing, and sewing a button. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned maker, you'll leave with the skills and inspiration to repair and revamp your wardrobe.
Mending your clothes is not only a practical skill but also a mindful and eco-friendly act. In a world of fast fashion and disposable clothing, visible mending is a way to slow down and appreciate the beauty and history of your garments. By repairing instead of replacing, you can reduce your carbon footprint and extend the life of your clothes. Plus, visible mending allows you to add your own personal touch and create unique designs that reflect your style and values.
During the workshop, you'll receive a mending kit that includes hand sewing needles, embroidery floss, and a mending instructional zine, which you can take home to continue your mending journey. You'll also have the opportunity to connect with other makers and share your mending stories and tips.
The workshop will take place at the Rosemarine Textiles studio in Hamtramck, Michigan. You'll work in a cozy and inspiring atmosphere, surrounded by like-minded people who care about sustainability and creativity.
Don't miss this chance to learn a valuable skill and make a positive impact on the planet. Reserve your spot today and let's mend together!
